Medical Services Only (MSO)


Overview: April 17, 2014

Effective: April 17, 2014

Through Medical Services Only (MSO), the ministry provides specific health supplements to certain categories of former recipients of assistance.

One of the major goals of MSO is to assist persons with the Persons with Disabilities designation to obtain and maintain employment by allowing them to retain their premium-assisted Medical Services Plan coverage as well as general health supplements as they move from disability assistance into financial independence.
