Palliative Care

Palliative Care Funding Options

Funding Options for those Receiving Palliative Care

In Ontario, many palliative care services are covered through the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) and begun by a referral from your doctor for palliative care. If referred for home care services, a Home and Community Care Support Services (HCCSS - formerly LHIN) Care Co-ordinator will determine services you or a loved one are eligible for. While some of these may be covered by OHIP, you may find there are gaps or a need for greater financial and care resources. Below are some additional options to consider.
