The Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP) gives limited, interim health coverage for resettled refugees, protected persons, refugee claimants, and victims of human trafficking. People detained by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) are also covered.

The IFHP is for people who do not yet have provincial or personal health coverage. That is, people who cannot get or do not have Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) coverage.
