Immigration Medical FAQs
What do I need to bring to the appointment?
Does OHIP or my private insurance cover this exam?
OHIP does not cover this exam as it is not a medically necessary test and is done for the purposes of the federal government which is different from provincial OHIP. Your private insurance may cover this test. We will issue you a receipt which you can use for your claim.
I am pregnant, can I still complete my immigration medical exam?
You may still complete this exam. The doctor will counsel you on the risks and benefits of completing or not completing an X-ray during pregnancy. If you do not wish to complete an x-ray, you can complete all other parts of the exam.
I completed a refugee medical exam before. Can I still use my refugee paper for coverage?
The Interim Federal Health Program only covers the medical exam once when you applied for refugee status. Once you apply for other application types like permanent residency or work permit, you are no longer covered for this exam.
