Clinic Updates

Health Cards are Important:

The Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) does not cover appointments with your doctor if your health card is invalid or expired. If you have recently updated your health card, please let us know by completing this form.

As of January 1st, 2023 we will be initiating a $40.00 fee for patients who present to their doctor appointment with an invalid/expired health card. If you currently have an expired health card, please ensure you renew it. CLICK HERE for information on how to renew your health card.

 

Masking:

If you are attending an appointment at New Vision, we strongly recommend wearing a well-fitted, high-quality mask, as COVID-19 and other respiratory viruses (such as the flu) continue to spread. Masking continues to be an important layer of protection to keep you, and the people around you, safe.

Please note: Patients experiencing any respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, fever, congestion, runny nose and/or sore throat) MUST wear a mask while in the clinic.

 

Flu Shots:

CLICK HERE to book your flu shot with a nurse. We cannot guarantee availability for all our patients. Therefore, we encourage patients to connect with their community pharmacy as an alternative way to obtain the vaccine.
