In the recent provincial budget, the government announced a new pharmacare program called OHIP+. This program will cover 100% of the costs of medications for everyone from birth up to 24 years of age (inclusive), with no co-pays and no deductibles. An OHIP card is all that is needed. This program will cover prescription medications and nutritional products listed on the provincial formulary as well as drugs approved on a case-by-case basis through the Exceptional Access Program. If the program is approved then coverage will begin on January 1, 2018.
