AJAX, ON, Aug. 27, 2012 /CNW/ – Medi+Sure Canada is a Canadian company
dedicated to delivering high quality and affordable medical products to
the Canadian diabetic healthcare market.

Medi+Sure Canada is pleased to advise that the Government of British
Columbia has now approved its 49c Medi+Sure® Blood Glucose Test Strips
to BC’s PharmaCare Benefit Program.

Effective August 15th 2012 Medi+Sure Glucose Test Strips were approved
and are now eligible in BC for full PharmaCare coverage as a regular
benefit.

In July 2012, Manitoba was first to approve 49c Medi+Sure Glucose Test
Strips to its Provincial Healthcare Drug Reimbursement Formulary.

According to Mario Cortis the President and Spokesperson for MediSure
Canada Inc:
“BC is the 2nd province in the past 2 months to approve our safe,
reliable and affordable Medi+Sure Blood Glucose Strips for provincial
insurance coverage. We are delighted with this latest announcement and
proud to help Canadian’s to reduce healthcare costs. At 49 cents per
strip, MediSure brings previously unattainable savings to B.C.
Diabetics and their Government, as all other glucose test strip brands
cost about 33% more”.

According to the Canadian Diabetes Association, over 3 million Canadians
are Diabetic and each spends on average $2000 in out of pocket expenses
to manage this disease. In most provinces in Canada Provincial
Governments pay about 73 cents per glucose test strip, about twice the
amount that USA Medicare pays for its glucose strips.

reliable, high quality and affordable products that save Provincial
