Government of Ontario

Cover the prescription drug co-payment fee for seniors during COVID-19

The Ontario government has recommended that pharmacists limit drug prescription refills to 30 days only during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, Ontarians are paying a lot more for their drug dispensing fees.

Seniors have worked hard to build our province. But many seniors in our community simply can't afford multiple trips to their pharmacy. Not to mention that they put themselves at further risk of getting sick by having to make multiple trips for their usual prescriptions.

I'm calling on the Ontario government to cover the cost of dispensing co-payments for seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you agree, please sign the petition below.
