Changes to OHIP Coming September 2023

As of September 1, 2023, there will be changes to which eye exams are covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP). The details of those changes can be found in this press release.

Earlier this year, the Ministry of Health and the Ontario Association of Optometrists reached an agreement which included changes to tests and appointments will be covered under OHIP. The College of Optometrists of Ontario is not involved in this agreement and cannot answer any questions regarding the changes. Any questions about OHIP rules or interpretation of those rules should be directed to the Ontario Association of Optometrists, OHIP and/or the Ministry of Health.
