As per INFOBulletin 4754, on April 22, 2020, the Ministry of Health (the ministry) established a three-month advance payment program to provide payments to eligible health care providers to address any cash flow issues that may have arisen during the initial stages of the COVID-19 outbreak.


The COVID-19 Advance Payment Program provided monthly, interest-free, automated advance payments that will be recovered from future OHIP payments to individual providers. Providers who were eligible for advance payments automatically received these payments on their solo Remittance Advices (RAs) in May, June and July, 2020 unless they notified the ministry of a request to opt out of the program. Further information was communicated regarding changes to the program as indicated in INFOBulletin 4765.
