Additional Charges and Payment

Most hospital services are covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP), which pays for essential healthcare services. Non-Canadian residents, patients who are not covered by provincial health insurance plans or those admitted to a self-pay procedure, will be required to pay for their visit.

Individuals who are covered by OHIP may still be responsible for any charges you incur while in hospital, which are not covered by your health insurance. This includes, but is not limited to, preferred accommodation (private and semi-private rooms), telephone, television and internet rental and items such as crutches, aerochambers and fibreglass casts.

Payment can be made by recognized credit cards, cash or cheque at the following locations at our hospitals:

If you are discharged after business hours, the hospital will mail you a bill.
