I want to ask if anybody has experienced the following type of situation and how did you resolve it.

- I returned to Canada in Feb 17

- Went to apply for OHIP with my Bank Statement for March 17 which had my address.

- The Rep at Service Ontario asked me for several other documents which I do not have.
- Finally told me to come with the March/April Statements + a Cell Phone Bill in my name
- I did not submit my application.

- In April I faced some personal emergency and had to return to my country.
- I came back in March 18
- When I came back I got a letter dated May 17 in which OHIP has written that since I did not submit the requested documents, my eligibility for OHIP is cancelled.

Has anybody faced a situation like this and how did you resolve it.


Now I have to approach Service Ontario after waiting for 3 months.


So please help me.


Thanks.
