    (b) The Client faces financial difficulties in traveling to any of the Service Providers in OVP’s network as listed below Medical Assistance outside of OVP’s Service Delivery Network may take longer due to the need to coordinate payment of the Medical Assistance to the Service Provider on behalf of the Client.

    CHECKLIST OF REQUIREMENTS WHERE TO SECURE
