A Note on Coverage

I am a licensed MD, however not all of my services are covered under the OHIP plan. Coverage is dictated by OHIP (not me!). Yoga and workshops are private pay because the content and/or format of the sessions are not considered “approved services” by OHIP. Generally speaking, mindfulness groups are covered if you are referred by your family physician.
