Working with Eligible Providers Not on the OAP Provider List

Families can still work with eligible providers not on the OAP Provider List.  Until April 1, 2024, the list is not currently a requirement for reimbursement.

 

Please see here for more details: https://www.ontario.ca/page/ontario-autism-program-childhood-budgets#section-6

or

https://www.ontario.ca/page/ontario-autism-program-information-practitioners#section-3

 

From that page:

"You can continue to work with a clinical supervisor who is not on the provider list as long the clinical supervisor has, or is working towards, Ontario Autism Program’s qualifications requirements. To use your childhood budget or interim one-time funding to buy services from a clinical supervisor who is not on the provider list, the clinical supervisor must give you a signed copy of the attestation form  before you receive services. You will need to attach a copy of the signed attestation form when you submit your expense report."

 

If you are still not sure whether an item is eligible, email oap@ontario.ca or call 1-888-444-4530.
