Formulary drugs: A clinically smart and cost-effective choice

Apr 18, 2019

Categories: Employee Benefits, News


As a practicing physician, you likely treat some of the 44,000 health system employees and their dependents who are covered by the employee benefits plan administered by 3sHealth. This plan allows for up to 100 per cent cost coverage for prescribed drugs, provided the prescribed medication is listed on the Saskatchewan provincial formulary.

3sHealth hopes that all practicing physicians will continue prescribing a formulary choice whenever possible to ensure great evidence-based care for patients. And by prescribing a formulary choice to patients who are 3sHealth plan members, you help ensure these individuals do not face an undue financial burden by having to cover the cost out-of-pocket for non-formulary options.

If you have any questions, please contact 3sHealth Employee Benefits at 1-866-278-2301 or reach out to us at
