Starting Oct 1, MDs in BC will face severe fines for privately billing for evaluations & procedures that are benefits under universal care (MSP). I wonder if @AdrianDix will apply this law, just as rigorously, to any naturopath who manages MSP-covered conditions...?#cdnhealth
2/n
Some may argue that naturopathy is considered a “supplementary benefit” in BC, and therefore can be billed privately. But naturopaths are routinely going well beyond any definition of “supplementary” practice, and are actively promoting themselves as primary care providers…
3/n
NDs say they perform 'primary care evaluations' for colds, chronic conditions, celiac & thyroid disease, fatigue, & other illnesses, but despite these being BENEFITS under MSP, will bill patients privately FAR in excess of what would be covered by MSP for an MD.
