What is the RGAM price?

It is the price covered by the RGAM for a given medication; it corresponds to the price payable by the RAMQ for this same medication, which private insurers are also required to cover. This price does not include professional fees, and applies only to the cost of the medication and the amount paid to the distributor. 

The RGAM price may differ from the total price paid by the pharmacist in certain specific cases which are determined by the government. In such cases, the law provides that the difference be paid by the patient.
