Some items not covered by Fair PharmaCare include:
*Please note that not all medications or ostomy products are covered. For a complete list of the items covered, please visit: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/health/health-drug-coverage/pharmacare-for-bc-residents/what-we-cover/medical-supplies-coverage/ostomy-supplies

Clients must purchase supplies through the province’s Ministry of Health approved vendor and supply list (currently under revision with NSWOC input).
Your ostomy order will then be processed through Pharmacare like a prescription (you do not need a prescription for ostomy supplies). The pharmacy’s receipt will indicate how much you pay and what Pharmacare covers. You can claim this portion to a third-party program or a Medical Expense on your income tax.
