The significant increase in drug costs has been causing headaches at the CISSS de la Gaspésie for the past two years.
Since 2019, drug spending has almost reached $ 5M.
The amount is estimated at $ 2.7M for the fiscal year ending March 31, while last year the amount reached $ 2M.
The Integrated Health and Social Services Center expects the Ministry of Health to fill the shortfall for this year to help balance the 2020-2021 budget.
