Prescription Drug Benefits for Children & Youth Under age 24 in Ontario

Text with the word analyzing circled in red.The Province of Ontario will now cover prescription drugs, currently listed on the Ontario Drug Benefit program, for children and youths under age 24 starting in 2018.  It is quite likely this will have an impact on group benefit plans renewing next year.

The final design and eligibility requirements of this program are still to be finalized; however in the meantime all insurance companies are working to determine the impact to their plans.
