By March 18, 2019 No Comments


OHIP+ Amendments Take Effect April 1, 2019

Well, with the Conservative government being voted in the Fall based on cutting costs in Ontario Government spending, it was inevitable that the Ontario government would make changes to the OHIP+ Children and Youth Pharmacare program.

The changes affect Ontario residents aged 24 and under, as follows:

  • Those with prescription drug coverage under a private plan will access prescribed medicines through their private plan, as they did prior to the launch of OHIP+
  • Those with no private coverage remain eligible for drug coverage under OHIP+. They will continue to receive benefits from the Ontario Drug Benefit program with no co-payments or deductibles.
