Province Cancels Co-pay Portion For Prescriptions

The province is making the cost of prescription drugs more affordable by making sure people using the Ontario Drug Benefit Program will not be required to pay any co-payment until July 1, for any prescription of 30+ days that is now being dispensed in installments.

In addition, existing and new Trillium Drug Program households can apply for an income reassessment to help reduce the financial burden for families during the outbreak.

Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health says "we are taking action to help ensure Ontarians continue to have access to the prescription drugs they need, without it being a source of stress or financial burden during the outbreak."  

Eligible households who are not currently enrolled in the Trillium Drug Program and have high prescription costs can also complete and submit an application and re-assessment form by e-mail or fax.
