Beginning in January 2018, the province will be offering free prescription drug coverage at no cost for children and youth aged 24 and under, regardless of family income.
Enrolment in OHIP+ will be automatic based on age. There is no application to join, and no upfront costs to obtain eligible medications. Those who are eligible for OHIP+ will only need their health card number and a valid prescription.
It is important that all eligible potential participants are aware of and use the new OHIP+ program so they as soon as it is available to fill necessary prescriptions that will make and keep their families healthy.
