Uninsured Services

As you are aware, essential medical services in Ontario are insured through the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP). There are many services however that are not covered by OHIP, which nevertheless consume a considerable amount of time for your physician and the office staff. It is our office policy to charge patients for these services in accordance with the 2009 Ontario Medical Association guidelines.
