REMINDER - Media Advisory: Patients to Share Stories About

TORONTO, Feb. 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Ontario Health Coalition will be joined by patients from across Ontario as they reveal thousands of dollars in charges from private, for-profit clinics; the same clinics that the Ford Government is looking to give funding and expansions to under Bill 60, Your Health Act.

The Coalition will present evidence in press conferences with patients Monday morning showing the private clinics charge patients for medically necessary services, upsell patients for medically unnecessary services and make access to care contingent on paying for extra fees. This is currently happening in private for-profit cataract clinics, MRI clinics, colonoscopy clinics across Ontario and it is costing patients hundreds to thousands of dollars.

What: Media conferences live and by Zoom responding to the Ford government's plans to privatize Ontario's hospital services and Bill 60, Your Health Act, with patients sharing their stories revealing that private, for-profit clinics are currently violating the Canada Health Act to charge Ontarian’s thousands of dollars for medically necessary services and manipulate patients into paying a growing array of extra charges.
