In a written submission to the Ontario Minister of Finance, the Ontario Association of Cardiologists (OAC) today called on the Ontario government to protect the health and well-being of cardiac patients and all Ontarians in the upcoming Fall 2020 Budget by:
- Maintaining OHIP virtual care fee codes indefinitely.
- Converting the COVID-19 Advance Payment Program to a Grant or Extending the Program’s Payment Recovery Period to March 2023.
- Providing funding for the purchase and use of rapid point of care COVID testing in community cardiology offices and clinics.
- Investing in community-based congestive heart failure patient care.
