They're chiropractors. Chiropractic services aren't considered to be medical services under the act. They're not regulated.Another private facility that does orthopaedic surgeries....for profit.
Accord to "the Act", its a hospitalChiropractic Clinic, Family Physicians/General Practitioners, Integrative Medicine Clinic, Maternity Care, Orthopedic Surgery Clinic, Specialist Clinic
Good thing . We went through once in a heavy storm , it really got ugly once we rounded Rose Spit and entered Heckat Straight .Knew some commercial guys from Pt.Hardy sprung a plank about half way across and would have died if there hadn’t been another boat nearby. Went down like a stone.
nope. Orthopedics isn't considered rehabilitative as envisioned by the act by itself. And obviously it's not chronic or acute.Accord to "the Act", its a hospital
Any extra billing outside of the insurance formula has to be reported by the province. Its not illegal in any way shape or form.
IF by 'foot' you mean 'accurate facts which have now been proven a dozen times over', sure.Clearly you opened your yap and stuffed your foot in it.
There are plenty of extras they (Feds) dont cover. The patient pays these costs if they choose them.
Call me another derogatory name and I guarantee youll never post here again.
Ahhhh, another goal post change. You realized "insured".
sigh. Why not go read that example i gave you. That should make it pretty clear.Who? Who cant do extra billing under penalty of law?
No, they do that at cost recovery not for profit. Basically they're paying what the gov't would have paid for those services. So theoretically if they've calculated it correctly money in equals money out, no profit. It is dictated to the hospital what they can charge for the service. And the cost is the same as what the hospital can bill the gov't for. In fact i believe in most provinces if i'm not mistaken the gov't will pay for it and you owe the gov't the money back. So for the hospital it is basically no different. In such a case you'd owe the province of bc XXX dollars, not Vancouver General. This would be different than the states for example where the same procedure may cost a different amount at two different hospitals in the same state and the hospital would pay you directly.So, when a foreigner wind up in one of our hospitals and pays with a credit card for ER, does that not make the hospital “for profit “?
If A hospital accepts your ohip card they bill you for a private room, internet, a tv, all kinds of things , etc etc. Meals are not medical services. That's why even gov't hospitals have a cafeteria. She's just wrong. It's the ndp so that shouldn't come as a shock. It's still the gov't paying for it and setting the prices outside of the free market for medical services.NDP health critic France Gelinas criticized the idea of further privatization.
"They'll bleed staff away from our public hospitals and urgent care centres, making the health-care crisis much worse," she said in a written statement.
"If private surgery clinics accept your OHIP card for your procedure, they bill you for your room, the painkillers you take, your meals, the physical therapy you need and more."
Yes, and while that was in fact one of the most hilarious things ever there's no evidence of whether the bee was a private individual or a gov't droneAnd then choked on a bee.
