As the cost of healthcare continues to rise, there is an increasing number of services that are not covered by the Ministry of Health that require significant time and resources to administer. The fees for these uninsured services are the responsibility of the patient or third-party organization requesting the service. A few examples of these uninsured services include:
PRESCRIPTION RENEWALS THROUGH PHONE/FAX, INSURANCE FORMS – ILLNESS/RETURN TO WORK NOTES
We have created two options going forward to help better service you with providing these uninsured services whenever required.
OPTION 1 – ANNUAL/ BLOCK FEE PROGRAM
This option is a one-time fee covering a full calendar year. This fee will cover a number of the uninsured services.
OPTION 2 – FEE FOR SERVICE
Pay for individual services, as they are required throughout the year.
You will be receiving a letter providing details on the Block Fee program. This program will be managed by a third party called Doctor service.
