The MedsCheck medication review provides an opportunity for pharmacists to meet one-on-one with patients, helping them to identify and resolve common medication-related issues in order to get the most benefit from their medication.

MedsCheck Annual

  • To be eligible for this program, a patient must have a valid Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) card and take three or more prescription medications for chronic health conditions
  • This service is also available at your home for those physically unable to visit the pharmacy

MedsCheck Diabetes

An annual MedsCheck for Ontarians diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes and is taking medications for this condition. The requirement of taking 3 or more chronic prescription medications is not included in the program criteria. Patients are also eligible for multiple Diabetes Education follow-up consultations throughout the year in order to support diabetes management including insulin education, blood glucose meters and test strips, diabetic supplies, sharps disposal and diet/lifestyle management.

MedsCheck Follow-up

An additional MedsCheck consultation that is provided to a patient within a one-year timeframe is referred to as the MedsCheck Follow-up. The MedsCheck Follow-up builds on the annual MedsCheck and may be conducted:

  • When a patient is discharged from hospital
  • Upon a pharmacist’s documented decision
  • If requested by a physician, registered nurse, or nurse practitioner
  • Before a planned hospital admission

During this review, pharmacists help patients understand drug names, strengths, adverse effects, and usage instructions, and how to benefit the most from their prescription medications. As part of this service, pharmacists provide patients with an accurate and complete medication list and share a copy with their primary care provider to support interdisciplinary collaboration in patient care. All MedsCheck services are available to the patient at no charge.
