Does OHIP or medical plans cover naturopathic care?

Many private health plans cover all, or a portion, of naturopathic treatments. In Muskoka, all teachers, OPP, some government employees, and certain companies provide around $500 - $1000 per year, per family member. Patients are encouraged to request that their policy includes coverage for all naturopathic treatments. The new teacher’s plan includes an additional $500 for diagnostic testing.

OHIP does not currently have a reimbursement policy to cover the length of time for a visit to an ND. Initial meetings are typically 1.5 hours, with subsequent visits varying from 20 minutes to an hour. All billing is based on a $140 per hour rate.
