Uninsured Services & Fees
Services Not Covered By OHIP
Orleans Family Health Clinic and your Family Doctors are committed to provide you with the best medical care, promptly and in a pleasant and professional environment.
Orleans Family Health Clinic supports public health care and is proud of Ontario’s Health Insurance Plan (OHIP). It is important for patients to understand that there are certain medical examinations and services that are not deemed medically necessary by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan and are therefore uninsured. These services, such as: insurance forms, legal letters, sick notes, cosmetic medical procedures, etc., are called “non-insured or uninsured services”. Your doctor at Orleans Family Health Clinic will charge for uninsured services in accordance with the fees guidelines set by the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO).
The folowing list accounts for most commonly requested uninsured services. However, if the service you request is not on the list below, please communicate it to the clinic’s staff or your doctor and you will be given further clarification.
All uninsured services must be paid in full when rendered. A receipt will be provided upon settlement of the account. Please be advised that, currently, our office only accepts cash for these services.
