The hike in seniors’ drug costs proposed in the government’s 2016 budget could stop seniors from taking their prescription medications and seriously undermine their health and well-being, says Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Bill Walker.
“The cost of medication is already too high. If a senior can’t take a medication because she can’t afford it, this could put her life in danger,” MPP Walker said. “The reality is that with increasingly complex health care needs, Ontario’s seniors rely on their medications to keep them healthy and out of the hospital.”
