Ontario Drug Coverage Announcement

On April 27, 2017, the Government of Ontario announced a new drug benefit program called ‘OHIP + Children and Youth Pharmacare’ for everyone aged 24 and under, regardless of family income.


The new program is scheduled to begin January 1, 2018 and is described as completely covering the cost of all medications funded through the Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) program with no deductible or co-payment requirements.


As information becomes available, we will post to our blog.
