Pharmacare is a drug benefit program for any Manitoban, regardless of age, whose income is seriously affected by high prescription drug costs. Coverage is based on both your total family income and the amount you pay for eligible prescription drugs. Each year, you are required to pay a portion of the cost of your eligible prescription drugs. This amount will be your annual Pharmacare deductible. Your deductible is set based on your annual family income.
You qualify if:
  • You are eligible for Manitoba Health Coverage.
  • Your prescriptions are not paid through another provincial or federal program.
  • Your prescription drug costs are not fully covered by a private drug insurance program.
  • Your eligible prescription drug costs exceed your Pharmacare deductible.
Application forms are available at any retail pharmacy.
