Here's how a $60 prescription payment is distributed at the pharmacy during the first purchase of the month:

  • RAMQ - $22.25 Monthly Deductible - 65% Refund

On a $60 invoice, you first pay the deductible of $22.25. Then, on the remaining amount of $37.75, you pay your co-insurance portion, which is $13.21.
In total, you pay $35.46 ($22.25 + $13.21) on the $60 invoice.

  • Group Insurance - No Deductible - 80% Refund

On a $60 invoice, you pay 20% of the cost ($60 * 20%), which amounts to $12.00.
