OHIP Coverage for Chiropractic Care in Ontario: OHIP_health_card_03.JPG
OHIP now covers a portion of X-Ray examinations for chiropractic patients in Ontario.

In the Spring of 2008, OHIP was re-enlisted for the technical portion of x-ray examinations for chiropractic patients in Ontario.  The technical portion consists of all aspects of the x-ray taking process (eg. film, positioning and exposure).  A professional reading component is not covered by OHIP, but many extended health care plans cover the cost for this component. For further details, please call our office.

Chiropractic Coverage - OHIP Delisting - What Happened?
The Government of Ontario de-listed chiropractic co-payments on December 1st, 2004. Over 600,000 signatures and individual letters were sent to the provincial government by Ontarians calling for the reversal of this decision. Some physiotherapy and optometry services were also de-listed in Ontario. Thank you to all of our patients who signed our petition and voiced their concerns to the government.

Your Questions?

Now that OHIP has been delisted, how does it affect me?
If you have private or group extended benefits for chiropractic, you will likely benefit from OHIP being de-listed. Your extended health benefits plan will likely pay for a portion or all of your chiropractic care up to your plans yearly limit. This potentially reduces the out-of-pocket fees that you formally encountered when OHIP co-payments were in place. If you don't have benefits, the cost of chiropractic care has only risen slightly and it is still one of the most cost-effective treatments available.

Some Good News...
At Advanced Healthcare, Dr. Pisarek has introduced grouped treatment packages (Block Fee Packages) that further reduce treatment costs (e.g. cheaper by buying in bulk). The treatment packages have been well received.  They offer cost savings and convenience to our patients.

I have been a patient of Dr. Pisarek for a few years now. Every morning I have to say "thank you Dr. P.!". Your care and your treatment renew my energy... no more pains in my lower back, knee and foot. With your help I lost 20 pounds and I am keeping it off. I am really grateful to you and your wife Hilda for taking care of me. My retirement got a new meaning, thanks to you.
