New OHIP+ Free Prescription Drug Coverage for Children
Posted on 09/19/2017

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.


Enrollment 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, as soon as it is available, to fill necessary prescriptions that will make and keep their families healthy.
