Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty plans to freeze the fees that the province’s doctors charge for health care.
Changes to various plans are expected to save C$338.3 million ($339.4 million) in the 2012-2013 fiscal year, the government said today in a statement.
“Ontario is moving toward a real wage freeze for doctors,” the government said in the statement. “The government is updating and rebalancing OHIP fees to better reflect current medical practices and new technologies and to avoid double-payments.”
