About the Pricing Document
The ‘Pricing Doc’ launched as a published guide in 2013 and is a result of a collaborative effort between the authors, the PEER Team, the Alberta College of Family Physicians and the Pharmaceutical Product and Pricing Administration team, and Alberta Blue Cross. The Pricing Document web application was funded in 2019 by a Northern Alberta Academic Family Medicine Fund (NAFMASc) grant from the University of Alberta Department of Family Medicine and the ACFP. This product does not receive funding from any other sources.
Updating the Pricing Document
Annual updates are performed, where the authors review the products listed, programs (like MAC pricing) and medication coverage.
Medication costs are updated monthly under the direction of Joan Tandy Manager, Pharmaceutical Product & Pricing Administration, Alberta Blue Cross.
