Pharmacare Deductible Estimator

The Pharmacare deductible for the 2016/2017 benefit year is calculated as follows:

  • The total income is determined from line 150* of your 2014 Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) Notice of Assessment.
  • The applicant's total income is added to the total income of a spouse (if applicable).
  • *If you and your spouse elected to split pension income, the line 150 amount is reduced by the split pension amount indicated on line 210 to ensure the pension income transferred is not included twice in a family's total income.
  • $3,000.00 is subtracted from the total income for a spouse and each dependant under the age of 18 years. This amount equals to the Adjusted Total Family Income.
  • The Adjusted Total Family Income is multiplied by the corresponding percentage rate in the chart below to determine the Pharmacare deductible.

Please note:  The minimum deductible for Pharmacare is $100. Once the deductible is met, Pharmacare will pay 100% of eligible prescription drug expenses.
