SENIORS CO-PAY PROGRAM: UPDATED INCOME THRESHOLDS

 

ODB Trillium Drug Benefit

 

 

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has developed communications materials to promote awareness of the change to income thresholds under Seniors Co-Pay Program, and encourage eligible seniors to apply. 

Seniors enrolled in the Seniors Co-Payment Program pay no annual deductible and a co-payment of up to $2 for each prescription. As a result, they can save approximately $130 on average per year in out-of-pocket drug costs. 

The income thresholds have been updated to:

·       Single senior – an income of less than or equal to $19,300; or

·       Senior couple – a combined income of less than or equal to $32,300.
