Uninsured services

The Ontario government covers the cost of providing medically necessary services to patients through the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP).

Certain services are not covered by OHIP and will have a fee attached to them. (eg doctors notes, completion of forms, driver’s physicals, invalid health card, etc). You will always be notified prior to receiving an uninsured service of the cost attached.

These fees must be paid at the time of service or prior to your next visit with your physician. Payment can be made by cash, debit, credit or cheque.

Requests for transfer of medical information to Alternative Health Practitioners (e.g. naturopaths, chiropractors, osteopaths) are subject to a transfer fee, as set out in the Uninsured Services list.

Lab tests or imaging that may be requested by Alternative Health Practitioners will only be ordered by the physicians after assessment, and only if medically indicated.

Visits exclusively for travel medical advice are not covered by OHIP and subject to fees as set out in the Uninsured Services.
