Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP)

The Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) pays for many health services you may need. Here’s how to apply for OHIP and get a health card. There is no waiting period for military families. You are covered as soon as you register at Service Ontario. The military member has to come with you to show military ID. If the member is unable to come with you, the KMFRC can provide a letter as proof that you are a Military family member.
If you need the letter, please contact us at 613-541-5010 ext. 5195 or come to see us in person at 32 Lundy’s Lane.
