ONTARIO HEALTH INSURANCE PROGRAM - VOTE 1405

The Ontario Health Insurance Program is responsible for key elements of Ontario's health care system: registration of eligible Ontarians, physicians' payments, other practitioners' payments, out of province/out of country services, independent health facilities, drugs, laboratory services, assistive devices, payment integrity, and protection from health-related fraudulent activity.

Ontario health services are available from health professionals in various settings from family doctors' offices to hospitals. Government-funded services are available to Ontarians who have registered, and who are eligible for the Ontario Health Insurance Plan. The Underserviced Area Program and the Northern Health Travel Grant Program offer a number of integrated supports that provide rural and northern communities with access to needed health care services.
