Ontario is the first province to provide free drug coverage to all children and youth 24 years of age and younger. Since the program began on January 1, 522,158 young people and their families have already benefited from having access to free prescription medications.

Through OHIP+, more than 4,400 prescription drugs are covered, including asthma inhalers, drugs to treat depression, anxiety, epilepsy and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, antibiotics, insulin, diabetes test strips, birth control and many others.

All people have to do is present their Ontario health card number and a valid prescription for an eligible medication at an Ontario pharmacy to receive free drug coverage through OHIP+.
