ONTARIO PODIATRISTS ARE THE ONLY PROFESSION IN ONTARIO THAT HAVE PARTIAL OHIP BILLING.  THEY ONLY COVER A RELATIVELY SMALL PORTION OF EACH VISIT TO A MAXIMUM OF $135 PER YEAR.  INITIAL VISITS ARE COVERED $16.40 AND SUBSEQUENT VISITS AT $11.45.  THE PROBLEM IS THAT MANY ONTARIO EXTENDED INSURANCE COMPANIES WILL NOT REIMBURSE THE PATIENT WHILE THEIR OHIP BENEFITS ARE STILL AVAILABLE CREATING A FINANCIAL HARDSHIP FOR THEIR PATIENTS.  WE HAVE HAD MANY PATIENTS CHOOSE A CHIROPODIST OVER A PODIATRIST DUE TO THIS FACT.  DR. HARDY, OWNER OF TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS KNOW THIS FACT ONLY TO WELL AS A RETIRED CHIROPRACTOR WHO HAD TO DEAL WITH PARTIAL OHIP BILLING FOR OVER 25 YEARS.  THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO MY PRACTICE AND FOR MY PATIENTS WAS WHEN WE WERE DELISTED FROM OHIP.  INSIGNIFICANT PORTION OF FEES COVERED, UNDUE PAPERWORK AND THE FINANCIAL HARDSHIP FOR OUR PATIENTS.

PLEASE VISIT THE ONTARIO PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION'S WEBSITE TO READ ABOUT THIER DILEMMA.  PLEASE CONTACT YOUR EXTENDED HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN TO SEE IF YOU WILL BE REIMBURSED IF YOUR PODIATRIST IS PARTIAL BILLING OHIP.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY DR. JOHN A. HARDY, OWNER OF TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WHERE YOUR EXTENDED HEALTH INSURANCE BENIFITS WILL BE REIMBURSED AT THEIR MAXIMUM PROVIDED FROM DAY ONE.
