CALGARY -- The province is changing eligibility requirements for the Seniors Drug Benefit Program on March 1, which could leave some 46,000 Albertans without coverage.

The United Conservative Party announced in the October budget that it will no longer cover drug costs for spouses under age 65 and dependent children of seniors.

Many people are only finding out now, as letters have been sent to those about to be affected.
