You must be registered with the provincial health care insurance plan in order to receive publicly funded health care coverage.

If you do not have your provincial health care card, but can obtain the number, our staff will ask for photo identification and validate the information with provincial health.

You will be contacted by phone or letter by either Medicentres staff or the specialist’s staff with regards to your appointment date and time. If the specialist requires you to call and confirm your appointment and you fail to do so as instructed, your appointment may be cancelled by the specialist’s office. Should you for any reason not be able to attend your appointment or need to change the date or time, you will need to contact the office of the specialist on your own to reschedule. Please be aware that specialists may also charge for missed appointments.
