OHIP changes come into effect

OHIP changes come into effect

Coverage for things like urine pregnancy tests, MRIs for minor joint pain and ear wax removal are being cut from the program.

Changes to health care coverage take effect Tuesday, as the province reduces the number of procedures covered by OHIP.

Ontarians are no longer eligible for up to $400 per day for out-of-country hospital care under the Ontario Health Insurance Plan.

The change was made because 90 per cent of travellers who fall ill abroad already have some type of private medical insurance.

Also as of Tuesday, some procedures deemed medically unnecessary are no longer covered by OHIP.

The province and a group of doctors unveiled a list of 11 updates to the program two months ago, cutting coverage for things like urine pregnancy tests, MRIs for minor joint pain and ear wax removal.
