Uninsured Services and Block Fee Payment
Although most health services are covered by OHIP, there are some medical procedures and most administrative tasks which are not covered. These services are still provided by this office and can require significant time and resources to administer. In order to keep the flow of this work as efficient as possible, a few years ago we initiated a policy whereby the patient or the requesting agency was charged for the uninsured services. We are continuing this practice into 2020. All fees are in accordance with the Ontario Medical Association fee guide, and a detailed list is included with this letter for your review.
As we have done in past years, patients may choose the option of paying a single, annual fee which covers most items on the attached list. There is no obligation to join this program. If you choose to opt out of the annual fee program, you will be charged for individual uninsured items at the time the service is provided.
Regarding the issue of prescription renewals without an office appointment: If you sign up for the annual fee for uninsured services, you will be covered for this service, otherwise, there is a $15.00 administrative charge for each prescription renewal request. Please note that this charge will also apply to auto-faxed requests generated through your pharmacy.
