Radio-Canada
Les Québécois pourraient bientôt devoir payer de leur poche pour consulter un pharmacien. C'est du moins la menace brandie par les pharmaciens propriétaires, qui craignent voir apparaître une brèche au principe de la gratuité des soins de santé, si Québec ne clarifie pas les règles du jeu d'ici le 3 septembre.

Healthcare costs plateaued in 2012 but set to rise
Benefits Canada
The increase in the cost of employer-sponsored health and dental benefits plateaued in 2012, but expenses are expected to swell again due to the prevalence of high-cost specialty drugs and the aging of the population, according to a survey. A Towers Watson study shows that for active employees, the overall employer healthcare spend increased just 2.1 per cent in 2012, down from 2.7 per cent the previous year and far below the double-digit increases seen not so long ago.

Health officials turn sights on reducing wait times for CT scans
Ottawa Citizen
Ottawa hospitals have some "astonishingly excellent" numbers when it comes to wait times, says Ontario's minister of health and long-term care. "But there are some that are not good enough," Deb Matthews said in an interview. Hospitals in Ottawa worked hard for a year to clear out a backlog of MRI scans that was the worst in the province. That problem is almost licked.
