Cost of treatments in Ontario

OHIP will pay for PSA screening tests if:

  • A physician or nurse practitioner refers you for testing
  • You have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and are receiving treatment
  • You are being monitored after treatment for prostate cancer

If you do not have a referral from a physician or nurse practitioner, the cost for PSA screening tests will come from your pocket.

OHIP also covers treatment for prostate cancer and post-treatment

Certain drugs may not be covered by OHIP but many private insurance plans do.
