Expiring Red and White Health Cards

Are the classic red and white Ontario health cards expiring?

Yes, they finally have expired this year July 1st, 2020. If you receive a letter in the mail to replace or update your health card, you have 30 days to replace it or else it will expire. If you haven't been contacted yet, your red and white health card expires July 1st, 2020. However, if you card has been reported lost or stolen, or you haven't used your card in several years, your health card will be cancelled. It doesn't take much for someone at the health office to click "cancelled" on your file. I've heard stories of patients who swear they never received a letter from the government to replace their health cards, and one day they got sick and their health cards didn't work. If you get sick, and your health card is invalid, then you are not covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan. You will have to pay out-of-pocket for the medical services.

Bottom line, if you have an old red and white health card, forget your nostalgia or stop hiding from the mailman, and go to your nearest Service Ontario office and replace your health card with the newer, more secure, photo ID health card.

Your Test Results are In

"Dear patient, please contact our clinic for a follow up appointment to discuss your test results!"

Please consider reading this website notice as your routine recall for all your test results.

We would like to streamline our phone system and front desk receptionist time so we can better serve you. As such, our clinic policy is that our physicians do NOT routinely call you back to let you know when a test result is in. Do not expect us to call you back regarding your results; we have too many results to call back every single person. We routinely ask you to make it a habit to return for a followup appointment to discuss your test results by default. All test results need to be discussed in person with a doctor, by default. We do not say, "if you don't hear from us, it means everything is okay."
