Project ID: 2017-004/2018 0950 019 000
Type of Response: Research project
Knowledge User: Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care/ Ministry of Community and Social Services
ICES Scientist: Rick Glazier
Summary: There is interest to understand whether temporal variation in social benefit payments may affect healthcare utilization among different subgroups enrolled in social benefit payments (Ontario Disability Support Program and Ontario Works). The information will help inform reforms that aid in future program implementation, or any other policy initiatives that seek to improve food security, income stability and reduce avoidable hospital readmissions.
