UNINSURED SERVICES (not covered by OHIP)

Uninsured Services

 

What are "non-OHIP" covered services or "uninsured services"?

Non-OHIP covered services/Uninsured Services are those services provided to patients that are not covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) which is determined by the Ministry. This includes services such as but not limited to: notes, forms, letters and certificates; referrals for physio therapy, massage therapy and orthotics; ear flushing and cosmetic procedures, wart removal/skin tag removal; as well as splints, tensor bandages and if your health card is not valid on the day of your appointment etc..

Why am I being charged for these services?

OHIP pays physicians for most medical services delivered to patients. Services not covered by OHIP are called uninsured services. Your physician will request a payment from you for those services. It is the patient's responsibility to pay for uninsured services.

How are the uninsured fee rates determined?

When fees are charged for uninsured services, they are based on the Ontario Medical Association's suggested fees as found in the most current edition of the OMA Physician's Guide to Third Party and Other Uninsured Services.

What forms of payment are accepted for uninsured services?  

Fees are payable by either cash or Interac e-Transfer and are due at the time of the service. The office staff will provide you with the specific email address for Interac e-Transfer at the time of payment.

For more information about uninsured services, feel free to visit the Ontario Ministry of Health website
