Unisured Services Information

A significant number of medical services are not covered by OHIP and other provincial health insurance plans. Some of these services include prescription renewals, absentee notes, insurance forms and telephone/email advice. To provide a cost saving advantage to patients, GFHC offers an annual block fees option, whereby patients and families are able to pay a one time yearly fee to cover uninsured services. For the majority of patients this will provide significant financial savings. All our patients should receive a letter outlining block fees and billing options in September of every year. Patients always have the option to pay for individual services as they are required.

For patients who opt to pay for services as rendered or for services not covered by the annual fee program it is our office policy that these services are billable directly to the patient. Payment is due on receipt of the service for services performed in the office and for out of office requested services payment is required before the service is issued.

Our office uses the services of Doctors Services Group to help administer our uninsured services. Doctors Services Group (DSG) acts as an agent for our office when communicating with any patients.

As noted above, there is a charge to authorize prescriptions by either phone or fax. Please be advised that this charge will also apply to auto-faxed refill requests generated by your pharmacy. If you wish your pharmacy NOT to auto-fax prescriptions refill requests, you must inform them.
