Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP)
OHIP Out of Province Medical Services
Looking to learn about what medical services are funded by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) in Canada but outside of Ontario? This is a great place to start.
There are two situations where insured medical services are covered by OHIP for insured residents while outside Ontario but within Canada:
- Emergency/immediate medical care required unexpectedly while travelling, working or attending school outside of Ontario but within Canada
- Non-emergency planned medical care required outside Ontario but within Canada. These services are requested or recommended by either a licensed or practicing Ontario physician or a licensed and practicing physician who will be providing the services in another province or territory. The ministry requires that certain insured services must be approved prior to the health services being provided.
