Occupational therapists are advised to consult their funding agency to confirm payment options for telepractice services. To facilitate access to services at this time of pandemic, Ontario funders (home care, mental health organizations, WSIB, auto insurers, Veterans Affairs (mental health)) are largely supportive of telepractice options and are working to determine funding and payment rates.

Occupational therapists who work privately are advised to suggest that clients check with their extended health insurer to determine funding. To-date, Sun Life has announced coverage for virtual care occupational therapy services.
