A health check-up, more formally known as periodic Personal Health Visit (PHV), replaces the annual physical examination.
The visit is intended for patients who do not have particular health concerns. It includes a review of your health history, lifestyle and risk factors, and a limited physical exam. There is evidence that an annual physical examination is ineffective in finding hidden disease in healthy people.
The personal health visit is insured by OHIP once per patient per 12-month period. If a physician determines a complete history and physical examination is necessary (for a patient with chronic illness and/or health issues, for example) the physician will request a full physical exam, which OHIP will insure (Source: Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care).
- Full-time and part-time University of Toronto undergraduate and graduate students who have paid the appropriate incidental fees.
- Toronto School of Theology undergraduate students at Emmanuel College in the conjoint full-time basic degree program.
- Students in the School of Continuing Studies English Language Program (identified by a student card).

Periodic Personal Health Visits are generally covered by your provincial health card or UHIP (for international and exchange students).
You will be responsible to pay for certain services not covered by OHIP such as third-party requests, for example, placement physicals or certificate of health for employment.
A third-party request for full physical or general examination is CDN $100*.
