Dear Patient,

As you know, the Ontario health Insurance Plan (OHIP) pays for most of your medical visits here and at the clinic, however, some medical procedures and most administrative are not insured by OHIP.  These services are still provided by this office and can require significant time and resources to administer.  A few years ago we initiated a policy whereby the patient or requesting agency was charged for the uninsured services.  We are continuing this practice into 2018.  All fees are in accordance with the Ontario Medical Association fee guide, and, with the exception of a few minor changes, you will note that most fees have remained the same for the third year in a row.  You may see a detailed list below.                                                                                                          
As we have don in the past, patients may choose the option of paying a single annual fee which covers most things.  This is convenient if you know that you require regular prescriptions refills or forms filled out through the year.  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.  See our description of fees below.

Regarding the issue of renewals of prescriptions 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 charge for each prescription renewal request.  Please note that this charge will also apply to auto-faxed requests generated through your pharmacy.
