Ontario Health Insurance Program (OHIP)

You are qualified for OHIP coverage if:

  • You are 19 years of age or younger,
  • You are 65 years of age or older,
  • You have been hospitalized with at least 1 overnight stay and requires physiotherapy for the condition which you were hospitalized for (i.e. Hip & Knees surgeries,  stroke,  etc.)
  • You are qualified with the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP)  regardless of age,
  • You are qualified with Ontario Works regardless of age.

In  2005,  OHIP coverage for adults between 20 and 64 years of age was de-listed by MOHLTC and is no longer available.        Individuals who fall within this age group may be covered by insurances such as Extended Healthcare  Plans, Veterans Affairs, Motor Vehicle Accident Insurance (MVA),  Workers’ Safety Insurance Board (WSIB) or self-payment.

Physician’s referral is required for purpose of OHIP insured physiotherapy services.
