Ontario Health Coverage


March 20, 2020

As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve globally and locally, Ontario is waiving the three-month waiting period for Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) coverage. Additionally, the province will cover the cost of COVID-19 services for uninsured people who do not meet the criteria for OHIP cove​​ra​ge. Together, these measures will ensure that no one will be discouraged from seeking screening or treatment for COVI​D-19 for financial reasons.​
