Preferred Provider Network (PPN)

Waterloo | Kitchener | Cambridge | Guelph | Surrounding areas

For a number of years a University of Waterloo Preferred Provider Network (PPN) has been established with local pharmacies. While the use of PPN pharmacies is voluntary, the University is committed to providing its employees with sufficient information to spend health care dollars in the most cost-effective ways.

The extended health care plan covers a maximum dispensing fee of $7. Please note that any dispensing fee over $7 is the responsibility of the employee and is not applied to the out-of-pocket cap (for drugs and paramedicals combined) of $121 single/$243 family.

Pharmacies that participate in the PPN have agreed to provide guaranteed levels of service, competitive (if not reduced) dispensing fees and competitive drug prices. Some of the PPN pharmacies have also agreed to provide discounts on other non-prescription drug items.

Your UWaterloo drug benefit card is required to ensure PPN prices and discounts where available.

The following pharmacies have agreed to participate in our PPN effective January 1, 2016. Please call pharmacies directly for home delivery information.
