What coverage do I get through the Interim Federal Health Program?

The Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP) provides the following coverages:

  • basic health-care services (such as doctor visits, hospital care, lab tests),
  • supplemental services (such as limited vision care, urgent dental care),
  • prescription drug coverage (medications and products), and
  • in some cases, one Immigration Medical Exam (IME).

The IFHP doesn’t cover services or products that you can claim under other insurance plans, such as:

  • provincial or territorial health care, or
  • private insurance plans.

Find out more about the products and services covered by the IFHP and how long you will be covered.
