Transition: Ontario's OHIP+
As you know, the Ontario provincial government announced last June that it was making changes to OHIP+.
Private insurance plans will once again become the first payer for young people under 25 covered by a private plan.
Discussions regarding the terms of the transition are currently underway at the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC), in collaboration with the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association (CLHIA), of which iA Financial Group (Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services Inc.) is a member.
What is important to know
- The effective date for the transition is planned for April 1, 2019.
- Before April 1, 2019, eligible individuals must continue to submit their claims to OHIP+.
- Effective April 1, 2019, eligible individuals will have to submit their claims to their group insurance provider.
- Effective April 1, 2019, claims will be reimbursed based on the terms of your group insurance contract.
