Midwives provide care to all residents of Ontario regardless of their OHIP or immigration status. Clients who are residents of Ontario are entitled to midwifery services and Midwifery Practice Groups are paid for this care. Midwifery Practice Groups are now able to access funding for the necessary lab services and other care related to pregnancy for uninsured clients. These tests include: referrals for anaesthetic, obstetric and other physician care, surgical assist (for caesarean section), lab work (including prenatal genetic testing), and ultrasound.
