Does OHIP cover the surgery required for diastasis recti with an umbilical hernia? ( In Ottawa)
Doctor Answers 2
OHIP coverage of rectus diastasis
Is diastasis repair covered by national health
I am so sorry you are going through this.
OHIP is likely to cover repair of the umbilical hernia.
It is unlikely to cover repair of the diastasis of the rectus muscles unless it is the cause of the pain.
The pain may be from a large hernia or it may have another cause that needs to be promptly investigated.
It would be unlikely to be caused by a diastasis, except in unusual circumstances.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
