Drug Pricing Document

The annual Price Comparison of Commonly Prescribed Pharmaceuticals in Alberta document identifies generic products (generally cheaper) from brand name products, a 90-day cost for standard doses (unless otherwise noted), and Alberta Blue Cross and Indian Affairs coverage.

The document is grouped by medication class and then ordered by cost. The introduction offers further explanation, specifically how the costs were calculated. While this document is not exhaustive, it contains many medications potentially used by office-based primary care providers.

Authored by Drs. Mike Kolber, Mike Allan, and Tina Korownyk, and pharmacists Jayson Lee and Tony Nickonchuk, the document is available for download here.
