My Healthcard is expired what should I do ?
Expired OHIP CArds
Please ensure that your OHIP coverage is kept up-to-date at all times. The Ministry of Health usually sends reminder notices a couple of months before your OHIP card will expire. It is the responsibility of the patient to ensure that their coverage is up-to-date at all times. If your health card is expired or due to expire soon, information on renewing your OHIP card can be found in this link for more information on how to renew your OHIP card.
As government funded health care providers, our physicians are only compensated for the provision of services if your OHIP coverage is valid, ensuring you have valid coverage is critical. Consequently, should you require an appointment but have failed to renew your coverage, you will be charged a non-OHIP Medical Visit fee of $100 plus a non-refundable administrative fee of $10 to cover transaction, processing, reconciliation and administrative expenses.
Reporting your updated information
In order to streamline the process and to avoid a call from us, please remember to complete the form below once you renew your OHIP card, to provide us with your new OHIP information. This form can also be used to request reimbursement for out-of-pocket appointment fees if applicable, see our policies regarding refunds for more information.
