Less rejected FIT requisitions 

Good News!

Have you noticed a recent increase in the number of requisition rejections for FIT? I have. Well, this good news should reduce that problem. Ontario Health and LifeLabs have worked alongside other partners, including the Ministry of Health, to implement process and IT system updates aimed to reduce FIT requisition rejections due to OHIP cards.

While an OHIP number is still required for people to access FIT, everyone who is covered for OHIP with a 10-digit health card number will now be able to access the FIT, even if their health card is invalid. So we will no longer see requisition rejections for cards that are expired, damaged, lost, stolen or cancelled.

Let’s all stay healthy!
