A patient contacted us after being told by their physician that a non-cosmetic dermatological treatment was not covered by OHIP, and could only be provided if the patient paid. We made inquiries with the Ministry, and confirmed that the treatment was in fact covered. The Ministry asked that the patient report this incident, as charging an OHIP-insured patient for an insured service is a violation of the Commitment to the Future of Medicare Act.
