GOJ Health Card
Residents of Jamaica seeking healthcare in the public health sector have access to all health services as well as medication on the Vital Essential and Necessary (VEN) list, for no out-of-pocket cost via the GOJ Health Card.
The GOJ card when presented with a public sector prescription at selected pharmacies, entitles you to the VEN list of drugs approved by the Ministry of Health for use in public-sector hospitals and health centres. This card can be used at all Drug Serv pharmacies as well as at Public Sector Partner Pharmacies.
Public Sector Partner Pharmacies
The Public Sector Pharmacy Partner Programme has been established with selected private pharmacies to improve pharmacy service to public patients.
This programme increases the options public patients have to fill specific Vital, Essential and Necessary (VEN) prescription drugs. In addition to Drug Serv Pharmacies, public patients will be able to visit a participating Pharmacy Partner to fill their prescriptions. This should reduce waiting time and make it easier to get medications.
