WINNIPEG — The Manitoba government is lifting the one-month limit on prescription refills beginning on Monday, May 11.
Health Minister Cameron Friesen made the announcement at a news conference on Friday.
Back in March, when Manitoba put the state of emergency into effect, prescription renewals were limited to a one-month supply due to supply chain concerns.
Friesen said the situation has changed a lot since March.
Some Manitobans have also said since the refill limits have come into place, they’ve been impacted financially by dispensing fees, which can be as high as $30.
The premier said the province is working on a plan to waive these fees.
This is a developing story, more details to come.
