Pharmacist Maria Schell from Shoppers Drug Mart will be speaking about OHIP+, Ontario’s new Children and Youth Pharmacare Program

Registration for both sessions opens online at events.kfpl.ca and by phone at 613-549-8888 as of 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 12.  For more information visit www.kfpl.ca.

Free prescription drug coverage for all Ontarians under the age of 25 — that's the promise of OHIP+, the new Children and Youth Pharmacare program. OHIP+ completely covers the cost of more than 4,400 drug products currently available through the Ontario Drug Benefit program, including a wide range of such things as antibiotics, asthma inhalers and EpiPens, as well as drugs to treat arthritis, epilepsy, mental health conditions and some childhood cancers. It can be complicated to take best advantage of the new plan, however, especially if you're switching from coverage under a parent's private insurance, or if you want your child to continue receiving a particular version of a medication which isn't covered under OHIP+. Presenter Maria Schell, a pharmacist with Shoppers Drug Mart, will outline how to navigate the exceptions of the program, how to make the most of it for common ailments, and how to save money with the help of your health care professionals. At the end of the presentation there will be a draw for a gift basket provided by Shoppers. This presentation will take place at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 25, at Calvin Park and is open to all adults and teens, but seating is limited. There is no admission charge. To avoid disappointment, please register in advance. You can register at events.kfpl.ca (or by phone at 613-549-8888) as of 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 16. FYI: This session is identical to the one held on June 9 at Isabel Turner Branch. Only register for one session. For more information, visit www.kfpl.ca.
