Uninsured Services


While OHIP covers the costs for most of your medical needs, we provide many services which are not covered. Examples of these include, but are not limited to:

  • Prescription renewals by phone or fax

  • Sick notes

  • Notes recommending physiotherapy, massage therapy, chiropractor, etc.

  • Insurance forms


These uninsured services require significant time and resources to administer.  The demand has increased exponentially in the past couple of years.  During the pandemic, we renewed your prescriptions without a visit, free of charge. As the pandemic restrictions have lifted, we will no longer do so.


Prescriptions are usually reviewed during an appointment. Before each visit, please make sure to check the number of remaining renewals for your prescriptions. We will endeavour to ensure that there are enough refills until your next visit for this medical condition. It is your responsibility to make an appointment before you run out.


As of December 1st, 2022, a $15 charge will apply to all Prescription renewals by fax or phone.


All uninsured services must be paid in full when rendered. A receipt will be provided upon payment.

Please see the attached list of services and fees, in accordance with the fee schedule recommended by the Ontario Medical Association. 


If you have any questions or concerns, please address them with your physician.


If you have any questions or concerns, please address them with your own physician at your next appointment.
