There is no fee for most of the programs and services offered at OakMed as they are funded through the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP). A resident of Ontario must have a health card to show that he or she is entitled to health care services paid for by OHIP. Please bring your health card to your appointment.
The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care pays for a wide range of services, however, it does not pay for services that are not medically necessary, such as cosmetic surgery, sick notes, reference letters, physiotherapist notes, travel consultation and immunization, copy and transfer of medical records etc. Uninsured services that are not covered by OHIP require separate billing processes.
