All children and youth aged 24 and under who have OHIP coverage will automatically be enrolled in OHIP+. OHIP+ coverage will stop on an individual’s twenty-fifth birthday. The new OHIP+ program will cover all drugs and drug products currently reimbursed through the Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) program. This includes more than 4,400 drug products listed on the ODB Formulary/Comparative Drug Index and additional drugs eligible for funding through the Exceptional Access Program (EAP).
A Community Health Centre (CHC) is a place where you can get free health care and social services.
You can find a clinical team of doctors, nurses and dieticians to help you. There are also social service workers. They will work with you to promote your overall health and get you settled in your community.
If you do not have OHIP (the Ontario Health Insurance Plan), some CHCs can still help you. All services are confidential. You can also get a pregnancy or HIV/AIDS test without having your name recorded.
The Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP) pays for your medical services for a short period of time after you arrive in Canada.
IFHP is for resettled refugees, protected persons, refugee claimants, and victims of human trafficking. People detained by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA)are also covered.
