The TDP helps people who have high prescription drug costs relative to their household income. It covers all drugs approved under the Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) program. For drug products that are not on the list of approved ODB products, your doctor may apply for special approval through the Exceptional Access Program (EAP).
You may qualify for the Trillium Drug Program if:
Under the TDP, you will pay two different fees each year:
The deductible you have to pay is split into four equal amounts over the year starting on August 1st. You pay your deductible by purchasing ODB approved prescription drug products at your pharmacy. Once you have purchased enough of these products to equal the amount of your deductible, then the ODB program pays for most of the cost of your drugs.
