What You Should Know About Fees for Uninsured Services
The Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) provides coverage for a vast majority of physician services; however, there are some services that are not covered. Physicians are pleased to offer these valuable services; however the responsibility for payment lies with the patient or the third party requesting the service.
Quality healthcare, medical advice and timely access are priorities that Ontario's physicians intend to honour. Speak with Annette for more information about other health care services that are not covered by OHIP.
