Does OHIP cover breast explants? I got my implants in the Dominican Republic but they're not FDA approved.

I live in Ontario. I got breast implants last year in the Dominican Republic. I found out the implants are not FDA apprpved. They are very painful and I want them out. Does OHIP cover the removal?

OHIP covers implant removal

OHIP currently covers the cost of implant removal.  If there are concerns with the capsule they will cover that as well.  They do not cover the cost of any cosmetic enhancements however.
