Incontinence supplies can be costly, particularly for those facing disability-related challenges. Fortunately, the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) offers assistance in covering the expenses related to incontinence supplies. Here, we guide you on understanding what ODSP is and how to receive free samples from ODSP for incontinence supplies.
Understand What Is ODSP?
The Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) serves people with disabilities by providing financial support and assistance in employment. If you are on ODSP, you may also qualify for financial aid related to medical supplies through the Ministry of Community and Social Services. The ODSP-Mandatory Special Necessities Benefit specifically helps cover the cost of medical supplies.
To be eligible for ODSP, you must:
- Live in Ontario
- Have a financial need, requiring financial assistance
- Be at least 18 years old
- Be a person with a disability, as defined by the ODSP Act, meaning you have a condition substantially limiting daily activities and affecting your ability to work or care for yourself.
How to Receive Free Samples From ODSP – ODSP Incontinence Supplies
Initiating the application process for receiving free samples from ODSP depends on your situation:
- If you’re currently receiving Ontario Works: Seek assistance from your case worker at Ontario Works, who will guide you through the necessary steps.
- If you’re not receiving Ontario Works: Choose to apply for ODSP either by phone or online.
