7 things to know about the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (#OHIP)


1. A resident of Ontario must have a health card to show that he or she is entitled to health care services paid for by OHIP.

2. The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care pays for a wide range of services, however, it does not pay for services that are not medically necessary, such as cosmetic surgery.

3. To apply for OHIP coverage, you must go in person to a ServiceOntario centre.

4. Most of your Ontario health benefits are covered across Canada. The province or territory you are visiting will usually bill the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care directly for hospital and physician services. In Quebec, you may have to pay for physician services and then submit your receipt to your local ministry office for payment.
