Fees for uninsured medical services

Not all of the services that your physician provides to you are insured through your provincial health card or your health plan.
As a result, a fee may be charged at the time of your visit. Consult the uninsured services fees listed below or contact us at
613-564-3950 for more information.

Uninsured medical services are not covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) and may be charged directly to the patient (or third party) at the discretion of the physician. Third Party services are defined as any service (including an annual health exam) received by a patient which, in whole or in part, is necessary for the production or completion of a document or transmission of information to satisfy the requirements of a party other than the patient.

The University of Ottawa Health Services issues electronic invoices by e-mail for outstanding medical fees. If you receive an electronic invoice by e-mail, you may process your payment online through a PayPal account or in person at one of our clinic locations. Your electronic invoice will indicate the date of the original invoice as well as a description of the medical fee for which it was issued.

Fee for Prescription Renewals and Referrals.
There is a fee of $20 for prescription renewals and referrals without a visit to the physician’s office, i.e. requests that are faxed, mailed or called in. University of Ottawa and Saint-Paul University students enrolled in the current semester, as well as patients who have been granted UOHS Financial Exemption, are exempt from paying this fee. Consult the Prescription Renewals or Referrals section below for more information.

$20 Visit Fee for RAMQ Patients
Quebec (RAMQ) patients are required to pay a $20 non-refundable fee at each visit. For more information, visit our RAMQ FAQ page. Please note that uOttawa and Saint-Paul students enrolled in the current semester are exempt from paying these fees.
