Eligibility

The Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) program covers most of the cost of the more than 4,400 medications you can search for on this page. You may be covered by Ontario Drug Benefit if you have OHIP coverage and are:

  • eligible for OHIP+ (you are a child or youth, age 24 or younger)
  • age 65 or older
  • living in a long-term care home or a home for special care
  • receiving professional home and community care services
  • enrolled in the Trillium Drug Program

You are also covered by ODB if you are enrolled in Ontario Works or the Ontario Disability Support Program.

If you are covered by the ODB program and need help paying for a medication that is not found in the search tool, it may be covered through the Exceptional Access Program (EAP).
