Ontario Celebrates Seniors’ Month
Proposed Legislation to Help Centres Respond to Needs of Seniors
June 2016 marks the 32nd anniversary of Seniors’ Month in Ontario, an opportunity to celebrate and honour the contributions that seniors make every day in communities across the province.
New eligibility requirements for the low-income Seniors Co-Payment drug program
You might be eligible to enrol in the Seniors Co-Payment Program if you are:
- A single senior with an income of less than or equal to $19,300; or
- A senior couple with a combined income of less than or equal to $32,300.
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 will save approximately $130 on average per year in out-of-pocket drug costs.
