I should have my own hotline to the pharmacy with the amount of times my kiddos have needed antibiotics in the last year. There is good news for those of us with frequently sick kiddos. Ontario has announced a FREE drug plan for young people.
The FREE drug plan will cost the province $465 million each year and will cover prescription medications for most common chronic and acute conditions. There will be no deductible or co-payment and the FREE prescriptions medications will be available for all under 25s regardless of whether they have private insurance coverage.
The plan will be especially helpful for families with young people who are not covered under private insurance plans nor the Ontario Drug Benefit program for social assistance recipients.
The FREE prescription plan is set to start on Jan. 1.
I guess the next round of strep throat will be marginally more enjoyable for our family.
