Annual Faxed Prescriptions Fee
As your health care providers, it has been our pleasure to help you will all of your health needs. It is our goal to provide you with the best medical care in an approachable, friendly, and efficient manner. As you may know, the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) pays for most of your medical visits to our office. However, there are uninsured services, which OHIP does not cover. Examples include faxed prescription renewals, sick notes, and insurance forms.
Effective September 1, 2017, it will be our office policy to charge for the convenience of faxing prescription renewals to your pharmacy. All faxed prescription renewals will be subject to a $10.00 fax fee. Optionally, you may elect for the annual fee of $25.00 per person or $50.00 per family. This is a one-time annual fee and it is valid for all faxed prescriptions within a 12 month period. You may also choose to renew your prescription at an office visit for no charge.
