Hello There,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

According to Service Ontario:
There is no longer a waiting period for OHIP coverage. If you are eligible, you will have immediate health insurance coverage.


You may also find information in the Settlement.Org article, What documents do I need to apply for a Health Card (OHIP)? and Who is eligible for OHIP? Feel free to also contact Service Ontario’s INFOline at 1-866-532-3161 for more information.

We hope this information is helpful. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to post them here.

Your Settlement.Org Team
