Is it possible to get money back for out-of-pocket medication expenses, or is it a non-refundable credit that doesn't do anything for us? 
I think I will spend nearly $1000 this year.

You do not get any medication credit back. They only cover what is prescribed and listed on the Ontario Drug Benefit list of medications. Any medication not listed;  you pay for yourself. I have 1 that costs almost $300 every 3 months and it was refused coverage on the special consideration request form 4 times that my doctor completed as he does not want to change it because of too many previous side effects with other medications.

Thank  you,


Karen

The health expenses tax credit only works if you have taxable income, which we tend not to have as seniors and/or on ODSP.

 

If you have taxable income, then get hand written receipts even for over the counter meds – tell them you get a refund for it if it is an official one – that means with the drug store stamp on it, your name spelled out and the name of the med and price etc., and signed by someone in the pharmacy.

 

Hang in there.

I don't know if I wasn't clear, I meant on our taxes.

You're luck your doctor is willing to try. Mine won't bother. I will probably be near $1000 dollar this year.

Thanks. That's what I thought. My taxable income this year was $200.
