  • PODIATRIC TREATMENT IN ONTARIO AND REIMBURSMENT FROM EXTENDED HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS: WHAT PATIENTS NEED TO KNOW!

IN ONTARIO PODIATRISTS ARE ALLOWED TO BILL OHIP FOR PARTIAL PAYMENT AND CHIROPODISTS ARE NOT.  THIS ONLY COVERS A SMALL PORTION OF THE TOTAL FEE AND REALLY IS HARDLY WORTH THE ADDED PAPERWORK.  I KNOW FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE THAT THIS REALLY WAS NOT WORTHWHILE AND THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO MY PRACTICE WAS WHEN WE AS CHIROPRACTORS WE WERE NO LONGER ALLOWED TO BILL OHIP.  WE FOUGHT THE GOVERNMENT OVER THE MATTER BUT IT WAS REALLY JUST A PRESTEGE ISSUE.  IN THE BEGINNING WHEN OHIP COVERED OUR WHOLE FEE IT WAS WORTHWHILE BUT NOT IN THE END.  THE BIGGEST DRAWBACK IS FOR OUR PATIENTS BECAUSE EXTENDED HEALTH CARE PLANS WOULD NOT COVER OUR PATIENTS IF WE BILLED OHIP.  IT REALLY WASN'T FAIR BUT THAT IS THE REALITY OF IT AND MANY PATIENTS ARE BETTER OFF SEEING A CHIROPODIST OVER A PODIATRIST IF THEY WANT TO BE REIMBURSED BY THEIR EXTENDED HEALTH PLAN.  YOU SHOULD CHECK WITH YOUR EXTENDED HEALTH CARE PROVIDER TO SEE IF THEY WILL REIMBURSE YOU FOR YOUR TREATMENTS IF YOU CONSULT A PODIATRIST WHO IS BILLING OHIP FIIRST.
