Drug benefit program formulary search

About the drug formularies and the search

The purpose of this search engine is to:

  • Indicate which medications may potentially be covered by the WSIB
  • Provide a tool for physicians and pharmacists

For reviewed medication summaries and their listing status, please consult Formulary drug listing decisions.

For funding (special authorization) criteria of select non-formulary medications, please consult Reimbursement criteria for frequently requested non-formulary drugs.

For narcotic (opioid) medications, please consult Narcotic management for injured workers.

Please note compensation for medications found on this list is not guaranteed.

The WSIB will continue to assess each individual case and their specific health needs on a case by case basis. For entitlement to a medication that is not found on the list or additional assistance, please contact the WSIB main line at 416-344-1000 or 1-800-387-0750.

Last update of drug formularies list: March 16, 2017.
