What are the "other specific situations" on Schedule K?

If none of the situations listed on the Schedule K apply to you and you were in one of the following “other specific situations”, you don’t have to pay the Québec prescription drug insurance plan premium:

  • You were at least 65, had a spouse between the ages of 60 and 65, and your net federal supplements were more than $5,475; or your spouse was older than 65 and your net federal supplements were more than $9,268 and you want to pay for your spouse’s premium
  • You lived in a province other than Québec but had a business in Québec
  • You temporarily lived outside of Québec throughout the year
  • You’re a foreign national and aren’t entitled to be reimbursed for your prescription drug costs under the Québec prescription drug insurance plan
  • You’re a French national temporarily living in Québec under the Protocole d'entente Québec-France and you were a full-time student at a school recognized by the Ministère de l'Éducation, de l'Enseignement supérieur
  • You’re a French national temporarily living in Québec under the Entente entre le Québec et la France and you worked (for pay or otherwise) while subject to French law
  • You’re a Belgian national temporarily living in Québec under the Entente entre le Québec et la Belgique and you were a full-time student at a school recognized by Ministère de l'Éducation, de l'Énseignement supérieur
  • You’re a Belgian national temporarily living in Québec under the Entente entre le Québec et la Belgique and you worked as a detached worker or as a self-employed person while subject to Belgian law

However, if you’re in any of these situations, you’ll need to contact Revenu Québec to find out which rules apply to you:

  • You became a resident of another province in 2017
  • You were a resident of Québec on December 31st, 2017, but you were also a resident of another province during the year
  • You’re an immigrant or emigrant
  • You stopped receiving coverage under the Québec prescription drug insurance plan in 2017 (this would happen if, for example, you were outside of Québec for over 183 days)
