Ontario’s public drug programs (OPDP) provide coverage for certain prescription drugs and other benefits for eligible Ontarians.

Benefits for eligible recipients must be prescribed by a prescriber and must be dispensed:

  • in the accredited Ontario pharmacy
  • from an Ontario physician authorized to submit claims for payment to the Ministry of Health

The Ontario Public Drug Programs At A Glance Report provides data on Ontario Public Drug Programs and consists of two companion pieces:

  • OPDP At A Glance: Snapshot Report provides quick facts about Ontario’s public drug programs
  • OPDP At A Glance: Data Report provides more in-depth, detailed data for analyses
