OHIP+: Children and Youth Pharmacare

Beginning January 1, 2018, the province of Ontario will provide drug coverage for children and youth who are covered by OHIP and aged 24 and under, regardless of family income. All babies, children and youth aged 24 and under who have OHIP coverage will be covered by OHIP+. Enrollment in OHIP+ will be automatic and eligible medications will be covered at no cost. Click here for more information.


Medical Certificates

Medical certificates can be obtained from the patient’s family physician or nurse practitioner or from a physician at the walk-in clinic.  Medical certificates are an uninsured service, meaning that they are not covered by provincial health insurance like OHIP.  This means that there is a fee for a medical certificate at UOHS as well as at external medical clinics.

Scent Free Environment

As health service providers, UOHS recognizes that some people are sensitive to scented products. Thank you for helping us maintain a scent free environment!
