Cancellation Policy

Dr. Vaidya’s Psychotherapy services are currently covered by OHIP.  Yoga Therapy, Corporate Wellness programs, and other Integrative Medicine services do not fit into OHIP’s definition of psychotherapy and are not covered by OHIP.

 

Please note: there are strict OHIP rules governing content, timing and fees for psychotherapy.

 

  • If you are present physically for the designated time, you pay for the appointment indirectly through your taxes, via OHIP.

 

  • If you are not present for the designated time, then OHIP does not cover the time for your appointment. You cover the time for your appointment, according to the following OHIP fee schedule.

 

Individual:

½ hour – 62.25 

46min – 125.50

 

We have flexible payment plans for those who are on restricted incomes.

 

If you cannot attend and appointment and please let us know immediately. We will need 2 Business Days notice to accommodate another patient. Otherwise cancellation fees will apply, at the above OHIP rates. Cancellations can be made by calling 416-536-5555 and leaving a message. We are unable to take email cancellations at this time.

 

If you are concerned about making appointments in advance as you are not sure of your schedule or your health status, please consider a same day appointment, or putting your name on my cancellation list (which can be done at the front desk).

 

Please keep in mind that this is not similar to your family doctor, who may be on another fee schedule, who sees more patients in one day, and who can generally fill cancelled appointments quite quickly.
