Your ostomy supply order is processed through Pharmacare like a prescription (you do not need a prescription for ostomy supplies). The pharmacy’s receipt will indicate how much you pay and what Pharmacare covers. You can claim your payment portion to a third-party program ( such as an extended health plan) or as Medical Expense on your income tax. Any items purchased through online suppliers must be purchased from authorized PharmaCare providers.
