The Government of Ontario has introduced legislation (Ontario Transparent Drug System for Patients Act, 2006) that will amend the Drug Interchangeability and Dispensing Fee Act ("DIDF") and the Ontario Drug Benefit Act ("ODBA") (the "Bill"). With a few exceptions, the amendments to the DIDF and the ODBA, and related regulations, are scheduled to come into force on October 1, 2006.
