Third Party Physicals and/or Forms

It is illegal for a physician to bill OHIP for any medical exam, procedure or decision, which it initiated to fulfill the requirements of a third party.  Therefore, these costs must be charged to patient or to the requesting agency.  Examples of third party requests are driver exams, employment physicals, etc.
 
There are two components to the cost:
1.   Physical exams and professional intellectual expertise involved in formulating a diagnosis and conclusion.  The cost for this component of the examination will be $30 or $50, depending on how many systems are involved.
2.   Communicate these finding to the required agency, for example, employer, volunteer placement agency, professor, etc., and taking responsibility for the decision.  The cost for this component of the examination will be $20 or $35.
 
Therefore, the cost of any third party visits will range from $50 - $85.  Be prepared to pay a total cost of $85 at the time of service.

Travel Medicine

It is illegal for doctors to bill OHIP for any advice given, physical exams done, or prescriptions written that relate to travel outside of Canada for any purpose.  Therefore, the individual patient is responsible for any charges for these exams, prescriptions or advice.  Our charge for these services is $40.  If the doctor is required to fill in a form or make a written statement concerning his/her findings, there will be an extra charge.  
 

Once you have see the doctor, you will be responsible for paying the fee even if you do not like the advice given, decide not to travel after all or do not fill the prescription(s).  We want all students to have happy and safe vacations or student abroad trips and encourage you to read all information given to you by Student Health Services.
