2021 Quebec Drug Insurance Pooling Update

Every year, the Quebec Drug Insurance Pooling Corporation (also referred to as the Société
de compensation en assurance médicaments du Québec) revises the Quebec group
insurance pooling terms and conditions.

All group insurers in Quebec contribute to a pooling plan that protects private sector plan
sponsors against the financial impact of large claims for drug costs. Based on pooling results
for previous years, the Quebec Drug Insurance Pooling Corporation submitted a report to
Quebec’s Health and Social Services minister. The report details 2021 pooling parameters
and has been approved by all industry members.

The new pooling levels and fees will be applied to renewal calculations that involve Quebec plan members.
