Uninsured services

Uninsured services

The Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) pays physicians for medically necessary services provided to patients seen in the office/hospital, etc. You may require some services at our Markham or Uxbridge sites that are not paid for under OHIP – these are considered Uninsured Services. Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Telephone prescription renewals – your doctor will provide you with enough medication to last you until he/she feels you need to have a follow-up appointment in the office. Requests for renewals, either from the patient directly or from the pharmacy, are considered uninsured services
  • Telephone consultation – this is phone advice from a physician at your request to discuss your symptoms or concerns, request advice or seek treatment
  • Transfer of records
  • Drivers' physicals
  • Employment physicals
  • Children's camp physicals
  • Newborn circumcision
  • Removal of some moles/cysts
  • Completion of forms and certificates

For your convenience, services not covered by OHIP can be paid for by cash, cheque, debit/Interac, MasterCard or VISA.
