The use of diabetes drugs in Canadian drug plans: H82-23/2016-PDF

Utilisation des médicaments contre le dibète dans les régimes publics d'assurance-médicaments du Canada.

"The cost of diabetes treatment has been rapidly increasing in Canada in recent years. While the growing prevalence of the disease is a contributing factor, more expensive treatments have been a major cost driver, especially given the uptake in new, higher-cost drugs. This study analyzes these issues from the perspective of Canadian public drug plans, and provides insight into the actual use of the newer and higher-cost diabetes drugs and their associated cost pressures. Results are presented for all public drug plans participating in NPDUIS: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Health Canada’s Non-Insured Health Benefits drug plan. This analysis will support policy decision makers and the health technology assessment community in determining the future impact of diabetes treatments on their plans."
