Changes to Ontario Drug Benefit Program Cards

As of December 1, 2016, paper drug eligibility cards will no longer be sent out with monthly statements of assistance for individuals under the Ontario Drug Benefit Program.

Individuals can use their Ontario health cards, instead of the paper drug card, to access prescription drug coverage under the Ontario Drug Benefit program.

Those who are not eligible for an Ontario health card will continue to get a monthly paper drug card until they become eligible.
