Ontario’s New OHIP+ Program

This post is for all patients living in Ontario who might be affected by the new OHIP+: Children and Youth Pharmacare Program. Beginning January 1, 2018, all children and youth 24 years of age or younger in Ontario will be able to get their prescription medications for free by simply showing their Ontario health card number and a prescription. Coverage will be automatic, with no upfront costs.

If you are interested in learning more about this new program, please click here to view a presentation from the Canadian Organization of Rare Disorders. This presentation gives an overview of the OHIP+ program, the Exceptional Access Program (EAP), as well as the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s OHIP+ EAP transition strategy.

In an effort to determine how this affects the PNH community, we are interested in speaking with all PNH patients 24 years of age or younger living in Ontario. Please send us an email at so that we can further discuss how OHIP+ will affect you and your access to treatment.
