An update on a story we’ve been following concerning the Ontario government’s plan to stop a  more than  50 – year practice of   physiotherapy services being billed to OHIP.

Round one  goes to the practitioners.

Ontario Divisional Court Justice Tom Lederer has granted the clinics their request for a suspension.

The new plan was to come into effect next week on August 1st.

Ontario  wants to replace the current system with a new provincially funded physio system. .

The private clinics argued  that their livelihoods are at stake and that thousands of people, mostly seniors – would be left without the service.

They said the province had an obligation to allow them to have input on the new regulation before it was announced back on April 18th.

The owners of the private physiothereapy clinics want a judicial review of the regulation – on the grounds that they weren’t sufficiently consulted 

They ultimately want the regulation withdrawn.
