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.

LOCAL HEALTH INTEGRATION NETWORKS AND RELATED HEALTH SERVICE PROVIDERS - VOTE 1411

As steward for the integrity and long-term sustainability for Ontario's health care system, the Ministry is collaborating with 14 Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs), in 14 areas of the Province, to promote a patient-focussed, value driven, integrated and co-ordinated health care system. While the Ministry provides strategic direction and guidance, the LHINs are responsible for planning, integrating and funding health service providers in their local health systems. The LHINs exercise their authority under the Local Health System Integration Act, 2006. Additional responsibilities and performance expectations are set out in the Memorandum of Understanding and Accountability Agreement with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. They have the flexibility to address unique local health needs and priorities delivered through hospitals, Community Care Access Centres, long-term care homes, community health centres, community support services and mental health and addiction agencies. Together, the Ministry in partnership with LHINs ensures the delivery of accessible, community-responsive and a balanced high-quality health system for all Ontarians.
