Minor Ailments Demonstration Project
For the past few years pharmacists in Nova Scotia have been able to assess and prescribe for 31 ailments. The cost for this service has ranged from $20-$30. Now, under a trial provincially funded program, Nova Scotia's Pharmacare recipients may have some of these ailments assessed by pharmacists - at no additional cost to them. If you are a Pharmacare recipient and have a cold sore, seasonal allergies, or a minor skin condition (such as mild eczema, athlete's foot, or rash) your pharmacist can assess your condition and, if required, write a prescription for you for no additional fee.
