Re-Apply to the Ostomy Supplies Program

If you are currently receiving coverage through the Ostomy Supplies Program you can re-apply online to continue to receive benefits.

First time applicants need to fill out the paper Ostomy Supplies Program application and return it by fax, mail or email to PEI Pharmacare at the contact information below.

Am I eligible to continue receiving coverage?

If you have received benefits through this program in the past 12 months, you can re-apply to continue receiving benefits if you:

  • are a permanent PEI resident as defined by the Drug Cost Assistance Act;
  • have a PEI Health Card; and 
  • have filed your most recent income tax return in PEI.

When do I need to re-apply?

Eligibility continues until June 30 each year. To avoid interruption in coverage, you must re-apply each year before your eligibility expires.

What if I have private insurance?

You must submit all receipts to your private insurance first. You can then submit the remaining out-of-pocket expense to the Ostomy Supplies Program for assessment.

What do I need to re-apply?

You will need to provide your 8-digit PEI Health Card number and your Social Insurance Number (SIN). You will also need to provide this information for your spouse.
