Where to Get Questions about Access Answered

Your pharmacist and pharmacy team are helpful members of your circle of care. Pharmacists are medication experts and can provide education about drug therapies for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Pharmacists are also a helpful resource to consult if you have any questions about a treatment you are taking. Whether you think you may be experiencing a side effect from a medication, have a question about how to use a medication, or are wondering if a new medication interacts with your psoriasis treatment, your pharmacist can help you.

If you have questions about whether or not a specific medication is covered by a private health insurance plan or provincial / territorial / federal drug benefit plan, the most accurate way to obtain an answer is to directly contact your plan. The phone number for each drug benefit plan can typically be found on the program’s card. If you are having trouble, your pharmacy team can help you locate your drug plan’s phone number and can provide you with any information that your insurer may request.
