Designated OHIP-insured clinics provide publicly funded physiotherapy services, including rehabilitation following a stay in hospital. Patients may be eligible for publicly-funded physiotherapy in a clinic if they have a physician or nurse practitioner referral and meet other criteria including that they are:
- age 65 or older;
- under age 20;
- any age after overnight hospitalization (for a condition that requires physiotherapy); or
- a recipient of Ontario Works or the Ontario Disability Support Program.
Community Care Access Centres (CCACs) are the single point of access for in-home physiotherapy.
