What is SADIE?

SADIE (the Special Authorization Digital Information Exchange) is a portal used to submit electronic requests into the Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) Program’s Exceptional Access Program (EAP), and track Ministry decisions.

It is also used to submit requests for Blood Glucose Test Strips reimbursements, as well as registrations for the Inherited Metabolic Disease program.

Who is SADIE for?

SADIE is available to all Ontario Physicians and Nurse Practitioners.

Do you have support staff in your office, Patient Support Programs or Drug Access Navigators who help you complete and submit EAP requests? SADIE allows you to set up delegates who can carry out the entire EAP submission process within SADIE on your behalf, or you can set up designates who can create EAP requests for you to review and submit.
