An employee at a heavy equipment dealership tried to claim the customary 80 per cent coverage for 14 Viagra prescriptions between August 2017 and November 2018, but he was told the company’s insurance plan did not cover the drug.

Jason Gibson, who worked for SMS Equipment in Elkford, B.C., paid $1,170.41 for the prescriptions.

In May 2008, three former companies merged to create SMS so three separate collective agreements had to be consolidated into one by May 1, 2009.
