  1. I’m not sure about getting them covered but if you can not afford the there is the health for 2 program through AHS that should provide them for you. Also some Sobeys pharmacies offer the baby be healthy program that provides free vitamins.

    You can get “OTC meds” covered but still require a script and you might need to check to see if your benefits cover those.

  6. Hoy, times have changed. When I had my 3 children our vitamins were over the counter, not a prescription!

  7. I had to get prescription prenatals (OTC ones made me throw up). Ask your doc for a prescription for PregVit (or another option they may know of)

  8. If they can be covered through insurance you’re already paying for why not? Saving money seems like a smart way to start with kids

    • Do you throw away money you don’t have to often? Holycrap. That’s crazy.
      I think the intelligent thing to do is to find ways to save money when you have children, especially when you are already paying for benefits. Why would you save your benefit provider money rather than yourself? I could afford this, but if the benefits I pay an arm and leg for monthly will, what ridiculous logic is it that says I should?

  11. Maybe ask your doctor to write them as a prescription to claim it when doing income tax.

    There is a way. Get your doctor to write you a prescription for them that differs from the dose directions on the bottle. Eg bottle says take one a day doctor should write take 1&1/2 per day. Then it’s covered.

    Alberta has a program called “milk for two” they give you milk coupons, free vitamins and answers to questions regarding pregnancy.

  18. You can ask your doctor for a prescription and ask the pharmacist to fill said ‘script, but you’ll have to pay for the dispensing fee as well as the cost of vitamins, so for a bottle of two of prenatal vitamins, the savings for taxes would likely be minimal to nil.
