For Seniors Over the Age of 65
On the first day of the month after you turn 65 years of age, take your prescription and health card to your pharmacy. Tell the pharmacist that you are now eligible for the ODB program. Depending on your income, you might be able to pay a lower payment per prescription and avoid the yearly deductible through the Seniors Co-Payment Program.
