Ontario residents with valid health cards are covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) and are entitled to standard ward accommodation. You may upgrade your room to semi-private (two patients per room) or private, when available. OHIP does not cover the upgrade costs. Patients may have insurance coverage to assist with these expenses.
Where possible, please confirm the type of coverage and daily maximum with your insurance provider, prior to admission. Some insurance companies place a daily maximum on the accommodations and any cost remaining will be the responsibility of the patient. If you have requested an upgraded room, we will make every effort to accommodate your request as soon as possible.
There may be an ambulance charge for patients transported to the hospital by ambulance.
