What is Chiropody?
Chiropodists are primary care practitioners and as such patients do not need to be referred by a physician.
Chiropody is one of Ontario’s regulated health professions. Members of the College of Chiropodists of Ontario treat conditions of the foot through Orthotic, Medical and Surgical means.
Fees are payable at the time of the visit and are NOT covered by OHIP.
In Ontario, health insurance companies do not have standardized programs for podiatry/chiropody services. Patients should be familiar with their health benefits before they agree to our services. Med-Team will not bill your insurance provider directly, but will assist you with forms your provider needs in order to complete your claims.
Be aware that your supplemental health insurer may require you to be referred or may require a prescription for some goods or services in order to be reimbursed.

All initial consultations require a comprehensive assessment including circulation, nervous system, dermatology (skin and nails), musculo-skeletal, health history (not just feet), lifestyle and footwear.
