Ontario to end program providing health care to uninsured residents

Summary by Ground News
The Ontario government will be ending a program that provides health-care services to uninsured people at the end of the month, something doctors say is extremely concerning for marginalized communities. In March 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic was first ramping up, the ministry of health established temporary funding for doctors to provide care to those without provincial health insurance. The program allowed anyone to access medically necessary physician and hospital services. In a memo sent to Ontario hospitals and health providers, the government said this funding would no longer be available as of March 31.
