Question: I am on a variety of medications. Are there any programs to help me with the cost of my prescriptions?

There are drug benefit programs that exist for individuals who are on a variety of medications. You need to qualify for each benefit, and you will need to apply to most of them. Benefits will also have different ways in which you qualify, so if you are applying for more than one benefit, be sure that you are aware of differences in eligibility.  

There are several Ontario Public Drug Programs. Depending on your income bracket, there could be certain co-payments or deductibles and/or varying products that are or are not covered. For additional information on all of the publicly funded drug plans, contact the Seniors’ INFOline at: 1-888-910-1999. You can also check out the following link to look for more information:
