The provincial government announced on August 3, 2017 that they will publicly fund the drug Mifegymiso as of August 10, 2017, for all Ontarians with a valid Ontario health card number and valid prescription. Mifegymiso has been available to the Canadian public since January 2017.

Pharmacy professionals may wish to review the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care's Ontario Public Drug Program resources, where you’ll find a Notice from the Executive Officer: Funding of Mifegymiso, a FAQ for health care providers, and a FAQ for patients (all published on August 3, 2017).

As well, please note that in collaboration with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, OCP has created Guidance for Pharmacy Professionals Who Are Dispensing Mifegymiso.
