Medical Services Only (MSO)

Overview: September 1, 2015

Effective: September 01, 2015

Through Medical Services Only (MSO), the ministry provides continued access to 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 other health supplements as they move from disability assistance into financial independence.

For more information on medical services only, see Policy in this topic.

For information on health supplements available to single parents who leave for employment, see the Transitional Health Services topic [see Related Links].
