To be covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP), you are required to have an Ontario Health card, which is also sometimes called an OHIP card or health card. To be eligible for an OHIP card, you need to meet certain eligibility requirements determined by the Government of Ontario.
Visit the Government of Ontario website to learn more about the specific eligibility requirements for OHIP.
To apply for OHIP coverage, visit a Service Ontario centre (see above for local Service Ontario locations). You can also visit the Service Ontario website or phone Service Ontario’s General Inquiry Line: 1-800-267-8097.
