OHIP and Uninsured Services

Non-OHIP covered services are those services provided to patients that are not covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP).

A Note on Uninsured Services

The Ministry covers all insured medically necessary services provided by physicians, however, it does not pay for services that are not medically necessary.  We make every effort to inform our patients of uninsured service fees, however, it remains your responsibility to inquire if there is a fee attached.  The most common uninsured services are as follows:
  • travel advice and travel immunizations​
  • virtual care ( tele or video) when the patient is outside Ontario
  • missed/cancelled appointments – appointments which are missed or not cancelled with 24 hours notice
  • transfer of medical records
  • TB test for employment purposes
  • drivers physicals/form completion
  • employment physicals/form completion
  • children’s camp physicals/form completion
  • removal of benign moles/cysts
  • ear syringing, not meeting OHIP guidelines
  • liquid nitrogen treatments (other than foot or genital)
  • completion of forms including sick notes, return to work and fit for travel certificates
  • disability tax credit
  • referrals for allied health services (massage, orthotics etc)
  • medical-legal correspondence
  • expired health cards – our office will attempt to reach you, should OHIP payment be denied, however, if no response an invoice will be sent. If our records are updated within the allotted time, the invoice will be null & void

NOTE: Examinations necessary to complete various uninsured forms, are considered an uninsured service


Please be advised: there is a charge to authorize prescriptions by either phone or fax.

The schedule of fees for uninsured services is set by the Ontario Medical Association. For your convenience, services not covered by OHIP can be paid for by cash, debit/Interac, MasterCard or VISA.
