The CPSO’s draft Continuity of Care Policy sets out expectations for physicians in four key areas

image of CPSO's Community of Care Consultation graphicThe College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) is accepting input on its draft umbrella Continuity of Care Policy, comprised of policies regarding availability and coverage, managing tests, transitions in care, and walk-in clinics. The OCFP is leading its own consultation efforts and we want to hear from members. Given the anticipated impact of these draft policies on family physicians' daily practice, this is an important opportunity for members to share their views. Feedback on the content in these draft policies will be used to shape the OCFP’s organizational response to the CPSO, from a family physician perspective.

How to participate and share feedback:
  1. Read the key areas highlighted by OCFP staff
  2. Review the full CPSO policy drafts and a 'primer' for each policy

Ontario government announces changes to OHIP+ 

Children and youth covered by private insurance to bill those plans first
June 30, 2018

On June 30, Christine Elliott - Ontario's new Minister of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) - announced changes to OHIP+. Children and youth who are covered by private plans will bill those plans first, with the government covering all remaining eligible costs of prescriptions. Children and youth not covered by private benefits will continue to receive their eligible prescriptions for free under the OHIP+ program.
 
Private insurers had previously given the government a grace period for some medications, which was set to expire on July 1, 2018. Ontario's new government has asked those insurance groups to extend this period as the new changes are made.
 
Visit the News and Features section to read previous updates about OHIP+, changes to government policies and the CPSO's Guidelines for Emergency Medicine in Rural Practices.
