Frequently Asked Questions about Uninsured Medical Services
Uninsured medical services are those that are no longer covered by a provincial health insurance plan.
Examples of Uninsured Services are:
- Prescription Renewal by telephone or fax
- Emailing or faxing reports
- Sick notes or government/insurance forms
Providing these services takes up to 5% of the time and resources required to operate a physician’s practice. When physicians provide these services for patients they are not compensated by the government.
We recommend reviewing your physician’s fee list and considering how often you, your significant other, or family, requires any of these services. Costs can pile up quickly and we find that most patients save money by paying the annual fee.
