FAQs about pricing

I heard Frida offers financial assistance. How does it work?

Yes, Frida has a financial assistance program that can lower the cost of your diagnostic assessment to $299 if your annual household income is lower than $50,000.

Does Frida accept private insurance?

You will be able to claim Frida's diagnosis & treatment costs if your private insurance plan offers a health spending account.

However, the cost is not covered by private insurance plans that do not have a specific health spending account.

Is medication covered under Frida?

Medication (if prescribed) is not included, but private/public insurance and Frida financial assistance lower the cost of medication.

We'll work with you to find the lowest cost option.

How much do ADHD medications cost?

The cost of medications varies. We can help you lower the cost of almost all the first-line recommended treatments for ADHD in Canada, as per the Canadian ADHD Practice Guidelines. 

For people with private insurance, we can usually help you access medication for $0 to $10 per month.

For people without private insurance, the cost is roughly $75 per month.

How can Frida help me save money on medication?

One of the best benefits of being a Frida patient is access to medication at greatly reduced costs.

Over 70% of Frida patients pay less than $20 a month for their medication and 50% pay $0 per month.

If you're prescribed a branded medication (such as Concerta or Adderall), the Frida care team will help you find and access co-pay assistance programs from pharmaceutical manufacturers to help you save more.

If you're prescribed the brand name version of Vyvanse — one of the most common prescriptions for ADHD — Frida is able to offer a greatly discounted price through our continuous care program.

Who is Frida's partner pharmacy?
