MedCare Clinics will not disclose any personal or health information to any third party (without prior consent). MedCare Clinics enforces a strict cancellation policy to maximize patient access to their healthcare provider, and therefore a 24-hour notice is required for ALL appointment cancellations. A cancellation/no-show fee will be charged for all missed appointments without 24-hour notice. All cancellations must be requested during clinic hours. For all medical services, a valid OHIP card must be presented before each visit to receive medical care. In the event an expired or invalid OHIP card is presented, patients will be billed directly for the medical appointment before the appointment. This payment is non-refundable. For all medical services not covered by OHIP, payment is required at the time of service. MedCare Clinics provides all patients with the required receipts and documents for submission to insurance companies or any 3rd party coverage providers. Please note that each patient's insurance agreement is an agreement between themselves and the insurance company directly. In the event that any insurance company or 3rd party coverage provider does not completely reimburse or even rejects any health service claim provided at MedCare Clinics, the patient is still responsible for all fees.
