Manitoba lifts one-month limit on prescription refills

By | May 8, 2020

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.
