Saskatchewan Medical Service Services Plan only covers medically necessary visits. Requests for forms, notes, Driver’s Medical Exams, cosmetic treatment and no-shows are not covered and will be charged directly to the patient.
No-Shows for referrals:
It takes time to put together a good referral letter with all the necessary background information. If you do not show up for a specialist referral, this is a BIG deal. We will not continue to refer if you do not show up for appointments.
We take our turn covering the hospital and emergency dept in Maple Creek. As a results sometimes we will be called out of the office urgently to attend emergencies. If this happens your appointment might have to be delayed or even rescheduled. We appreciate your understanding.
Abusive language, threats:
Our staff have been instructed to inform us if anyone treats them rudely or threatens them. If this occurs, we will ask you to find a new physician. We will report any threats to the RCMP.
