No rise in drug prices

No rise in drug prices

Dr Carl Ward who is a member of the Drug Formulary Committee says Barbadians will not have to pay more for medication just because changes were made to the drug formulary.

Last week, the Barbados Drug Service announced that from April first, some drugs will be added to the formulary, while others will be taken off.

Speaking on Mornin’ Barbados, Dr Ward said there will always be multiple free options for people whose medications were taken off the formulary.

But the person's doctor will also help to determine whether or not they pay more.
