Sunday House Call, #865, February 12, 2023: Facility fees, co-payments and your private/public insurance plan coverage.

I discussed the comparisons between private health insurance plans (that all politicians and public service employees have) and our public health insurance system in Ontario. There is a disconnect between how we think about these and what is required in order to prevent further deterioration of family practice and primary care services.

Your calls about:

  • Dispensing of narcotics in the hospital setting
  • Piriformis syndrome treatment
  • Healthcare rationing
