Pharmacare is a drug benefit program for eligible Manitobans, regardless of disease or age, whose income is seriously affected by high prescription drug costs.

Pharmacare coverage is based on both your total family income and the amount you pay for eligible prescription drugs.  The total family income is adjusted to include a spouse and the number of dependents, if applicable.

Each year you are required to pay a portion of the cost of your eligible prescription drugs.  This amount is your annual Pharmacare deductible.  Pharmacare sets your deductible based on your adjusted family income.

You qualify for the Manitoba Pharmacare program if you meet all of the following criteria:

  • You are eligible for Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living coverage.
  • Your prescriptions are not covered by other provincial or federal programs.
