Ontario Provides Relief for ODB Recipients during COVID19

Ontario recorded the highest number of COVID-19 cases since late June

The province of Ontario is making prescription drugs more affordable for Ontarians on the Ontario Drug Benefit program.  Effective immediately those affected will not be required to pay co-payments until July 1, 2020.
“During these unprecedented times, our government is doing everything we can to provide additional relief for vulnerable people impacted by COVID-19,” Health Minister Christine Elliott said.  The measure is applicable to prescriptions of 30 days now being dispensed in instalments.
If income has changed 10% or more in 2019 or 2020 when compared to 2018, benefit recipients are able to apply to have their deductible recalculated.   For more information click here.
