Universal Coverage for Mifegymiso

The Saskatchewan government  decided to fully cover the cost of the abortion pill Mifegymiso. Universal coverage under the province’s drug plan is in effect starting Friday, June 7, 2019. Mifegymiso is the first oral drug approved by Health Canada for early termination of a pregnancy. Saskatchewan was the last province to say it would provide universal coverage.

A large part of the reason for this coverage is the lobbying of Saskatchewan Medical Students and the NDP. Reference: CBC Saskatchewan
