A Plan to Cover Costs for Refugees

At Grover Dental Care, we participate in this plan & hope it will further benefit the health of the community we serve. The Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP) is a government-funded plan to help refugees get the health care they need, including dental care.

About The Program

This program is intended for those who do not already receive another form of government-funded health care due to their refugee status. The government of Canada defines refugees as people “who have been forced to leave their country & who are afraid to return because of war, violence or persecution based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group.”

Refugees have a long history of finding relative peace in Canada, & come from a wide variety of backgrounds. If you belong to one of these groups, the IFHP may be able to help you. Note that in addition to what is traditionally thought of as refugee status, victims of human trafficking, protected persons, victims of domestic violence & more may also qualify for the program.

What Can the IFHP Do for Me?

The IFHP can cover costs for a variety of procedures that fall under the umbrella of urgent dental care. Services may include:

  • Emergency Exams
  • X-Rays
  • Fillings
  • Partial Dentures
  • Extractions

This is in addition to other medical coverage provided, such as general health screenings.

Give us a call & our knowledgeable staff will guide you through your coverage options. Please note that the IFHP does not work with private insurance plans & cannot be used to eliminate a copay under an insurance plan.

You will have to prove your eligibility in order to receive coverage for care. Check here for accepted documents.

We offer convenient appointment times in order to provide everyone the care they need & deserve. Our goal is to provide excellent dental care to everyone & improve the smiles of our community. We will do everything possible to ensure your care is affordable & comfortable.

Welcome 8am–8pm & on Saturdays & Sunday!
