Emergency Orders and Prescription Refill Waivers

When a province issues an emergency order in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the declaration may trigger a prescription refill waiver. These waivers allow pharmacists to refill prescriptions early if they deem a medication, such as insulin, critical to saving a person’s life or maintaining their treatment plan.

For further details, follow your local health department on social media for postings on waivers. You can call your local pharmacy and health insurer for updates.
