The Act Respecting Prescription Drug Insurance

Under the Act Respecting Prescription Drug Insurance, all Québecers must register for and contribute to a medication insurance plan.  

Workers and retirees under 65 years of age who do not have medication insurance coverage from another insurer must be insured by MÉDIC Construction when they are eligible. If they covered by the public medication insurance administered by the Régie de l'assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ), they must cancel that coverage.

People who are 65 years of age or over have the choice of being insured by the RAMQ or by a private insurance plan such as MÉDIC Construction.
