Extended Care Program
Essential medical services in Ontario are covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP). There are other medical procedures and administrative services that are not covered by OHIP, for which patients are billed directly. It is possible that these services may be covered by other forms of insurance you have, for example group benefits through your employer. However, it is expected that all uninsured services must be paid in full when rendered.
In order to save our patients the headache of paying for uninsured service on a one-by one basis, we have developed an Extended Coverage Plan. The plan covers you for a year of service. There is no obligation to subscribe.
There are both individual and family plans. The family plan covers two or more patients from the same household. The plan begins the day you sign up, and covers you for one (1) year.
Individual Plan: $150
Family Plan $300
