LifeLabs Statement Regarding OHIP-Insured Testing

Toronto, ON. May 30, 2022. – LifeLabs delivers comprehensive community lab testing services to over 50,000 patients daily and supports 13.5 million patient visits annually across Ontario. Our services are governed by partnerships with the provincial government which dictate scope, service-level, funding and standards of care.

The Ontario Government prescribes which tests are covered by OHIP. There have not been any laboratory tests de-listed (i.e. removed with no replacement test) in the last five years under the Ontario Health Insurance Plan Schedule of Benefits for Laboratory Services. For more information on the Schedule of Benefits, please see here (https://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/pro/programs/ohip/sob/) or contact the Ministry of Health directly.

LifeLabs cannot bill individuals with OHIP coverage for tests that are covered by OHIP. If patients have questions, we encourage them to reach out to us directly at: 1-877-849-3637.
