To receive reimbursement for drugs paid for out-of-pocket, you need to send a letter to the Ministry of Health that includes:
– a note explaining that you need a refund.
– the health card number for the person the refund is for.
– the original (not fax or photocopy) prescription receipt (this is different from the cash register receipt) – if you’ve lost the original prescription receipt, the pharmacist can reprint it for you.
Then send everything to:
Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care
P.O. Box 337, Station D
Etobicoke ON M9A 4X3
They will then issue a cheque for any owed funds. This can take up to 8 weeks.
