Interim Federal Health Program – Coverage for Syrian Refugees

The Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP) provides limited, temporary health coverage for resettled refugees, refugee claimants and certain other groups who are not eligible for provincial or territorial health-care coverage. Eligible individuals receive coverage under the IFHP until they are eligible for provincial or territorial health insurance. The IFHP also does not cover health care services and products where a claim can be made under a private insurance plan.
