OHIP Change to Coverage for Chiropractors

Effective December 1, 2004, chiropractic services are no longer covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP).

Frequently Asked Questions

Does anyone receive government (OHIP) funding for these services?

No.  The province no longer covers chiropractic services. People are responsible for paying the fees charged by chiropractors. People with private insurance may have these services covered in part or full by their private plans.

Does my employer now pay for the entire cost of these services?

Each individual employer needs to decide this matter. People should speak to their employer's human resources department for clarification of their coverage.
