You can apply for the Seniors’ Drug Plan up to two months before you turn 65.
- If you apply before your 65th birthday and your application is approved, your coverage will begin on the first day of the month you turn 65.
- If you apply after your 65th birthday and your application is approved, your coverage will begin once your application is processed.
To apply, each eligible senior must complete and sign an application and consent form.
- By using Form A, you give the Drug Plan and Extended Benefits Branch permission to access your income information through the Canada Revenue Agency. Your coverage will be automatically renewed each year as long as you file your income tax return. You will be notified if there has been a change in your coverage.
- If you do not file income tax or would rather submit your financial information annually, please complete Form B, and contact the Drug Plan and Extended Benefits Branch for additional information.
By completing Form B, you will be required to apply for coverage each year with supporting income documentation. In the fall, you will receive a renewal notice with the required form, details on any deadlines, contact information and instructions to renew your benefits.
For your convenience, we encourage you to complete Form A, to prevent a lapse in coverage and you do not have to apply for coverage every year.
Please forward your completed application to:
