And not all decisions can be appealed to the SBT.
Decisions you can appeal
You can appeal most decisions about costs related to your health.
For example, you can appeal what ODSP decides about:
- a special diet allowance
- the costs of having a guide dog
- hearing aids and mobility devices
- costs for an assistive device that are not covered by the government’s Assistive Devices Program
- certain health care supplies
- travel costs that you have for medical reasons
Even if the law says that a decision can’t be appealed, you can still ask for an internal review.
If you’re not sure if you can appeal the decision, you can still start an appeal.
Talk to a community legal clinic if you want to appeal a decision but aren’t sure if you can.
