Annual Physical Coverage Ends In Ontario


Ontario will no longer cover the cost of a full physical examination for healthy patients between the ages of 18 and 64. The change went into effect to start this year following an agreement between the Ontario Medical Association and the Ministry of Health. Instead, the Ontario Medical Association says patients will receive personalized health reviews which will involve limited examination and more discussion. It says evidence shows a head-to-toe exam for healthy people with no complaints is not helpful. The change does not affect children, seniors, or patients with chronic conditions.
