Which Medications Are Covered?

In this three year study, we are testing the impact of two interventions to which you will be randomly assigned:

1) Preventive medications free of charge: receiving preventive medications for diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease without co-payment through your regular Alberta Blue Cross Coverage for Seniors Program (see the attached medication guide which provides more information on the preventive medications that would be provided free of charge) and

2) Personalized education program to help you manage your chronic conditions: receiving a comprehensive patient education program tailored to your needs based on the information you provide to us at the start of the study.
