Let BC PharmaCare hear "Your Voice" on baricitinib (Olumiant™) for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis

Baricitinib (Olumiant™) is now being considered for coverage under the British Columbia Ministry of Health’s PharmaCare program. By filling out a questionnaire on a website called Your Voice, you can provide feedback about baricitinib for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.

You can give input if you are a B.C. resident and have rheumatoid arthritis, a caregiver to someone with rheumatoid arthritis, or if your group represents people who live with rheumatoid arthritis.

If you would like our help in providing your input, you can email your comments to or call us at 604-974-1366. Your feedback will be anonymized and collated with others who choose to provide it to ACE for submission on their behalf. Please provide your input to us by Tuesday, July 2 so that we may submit the questionnaire in time for the deadline.

The submission deadline is midnight on July 4, 2019. Patients and caregivers may give their input directly through the links below.
