Is my visit covered by MSP?
Provincial subsidies for naturopathic medicine were cut by the liberal government on January 1, 2002. At present there is no MSP coverage available for visits to an ND unless you are on premium assistance. There is limited coverage for premium assistance patients; find out if you have coverage and whether your ND will see premium assistance patients before making an appointment. Most extended health plans (i.e., private plans usually through your employer) do cover visits to NDs. Most plans pay 80% of patient visits but make sure you clarify coverage with your benefits manager

- Lab tests and imaging-can bring to visit or upload to patient portal

Return Naturopathic Consultation
How often are my follow up Naturopathic Consultations?
This can vary because of the individuality of each patient, their treatment plan and availability. Typically we like to see patients every 2 weeks initially until improvement is seen and then less frequently. Once we feel that the patient is improving or has stabilized, visits are usually every 4 weeks until resolution of their health concern
How long are return Naturopathic Consultations?
Return consultations can vary in time from 15-45min.
