Children's Drug Plan

The program allows families to pay $25 per prescription for drugs listed on the Saskatchewan Formulary and those approved under Exception Drug Status. Ask your physician or pharmacist if any of your child’s medications qualify for Exception Drug Status

Eligibility

  • Children 14 and under are automatically eligible for coverage; 
  • Your pharmacy will be aware of policy regarding coverage;
  • You are not required to show proof of eligibility;
  • Children covered under Federal Government programs are not eligible for this coverage, such as the Federal Non-Insured Health Benefits Program. 

If you already pay less than $25 per prescription for your child, you will continue to do so. For example, if your child’s medication is $25 per prescription under the Children’s Drug Plan, but $11 under the Special Support Program, you will continue to pay $11 for that prescription.  You will continue to pay full price for any over-the-counter and herbal products and medications that are not listed in the Saskatchewan Formulary.

Coverage under other programs

Children will continue to receive their prescriptions for free if they have coverage under the following programs:
