Will you accept my insurance?

Unfortunately no. We are located in Canada and because of this we cannot accept any foreign insurance. We will provide you with a proper receipt for insurance purposes. Your insurance company may or may not accept our receipts.

How do I pay for my order?

Canada Drugs is pleased to offer several convenient payment options. In order of preference they are:



  • Direct withdrawal from a checking account: This avoids the high processing fees credit card companies charge us for processing credit cards. Patients are also not forced to pay international transaction fees on top of their order costs (usually 1%-5%).


  • Personal Check/Money Order: This is a tried and trusted method of payment. Checks cannot be hacked and are very secure. Patients who wish to pay by check may do so provided they provide us with a form of government issued ID, ex. a driver's license number or passport number. If you are willing to provide this information Canada Drugs will grant you credit on your account and ship your order before receiving the check. This ensure you get your medication as soon as possible.


  • American Express: American Express is accepted by all of our pharmacy partners.


  • Visa/MasterCard: Canada Drugs understands that many patients prefer to use their Visa or MasterCard credit cards to pay for their orders. It is important to remember that these cards are not accepted by all our pharmacy partners. Your patient service representative will inform you if paying by Visa or MasterCard is an option for your particular order.


  • Check Finance Plan: If the cost of buying a three month supply is too high to do in one lump sum, you can take advantage of our check finance plan. You would send us three checks, each for one third of the order amount. The first check would be dated for deposit right away while the second would be dated for one month later; the third dated for two months later. This allow patients to spread the cost of their medications over three months. Even better, no interest is charged.


  • Wire Transfer: For high value orders, i.e. orders over $1000, a wire transfer may be accepted. Once the order has been placed our billing department will email payment information to the patient to set up the wire transfer. If your order costs less than $1000 additional fees and charges apply.


Canada Drugs does not accept the following under any circumstances:

  • Visa/MasterCard gift cards

  • Health savings cards

  • Flexible spending cards

  • Coupons or discounts for local businesses or manufacturers.

Are all drugs available in Canada?

No. We do not have all medications that are available in other parts of the world. We do have the majority of medications available in Canada.

Do I get charged a shipping charge for each prescription?

No. We offer free shipping on all orders to the US, Puerto Rico, the UK and Canada.
