A protest has been scheduled in Queen’s Park today by a group of Ontario doctors who are rallying over cuts to health care.
The group known as Concerned Ontario Doctors says they want the accountability from the Wynne government.
Talks between the government and the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) broke down in January 2015 over fee cuts that the government imposed. Health Minister Eric Hoskins is asking the OMA to return to the table. The province still has had two years to reach a deal with the OMA.
The rally comes a day after Health Minister Eric Hoskins said that more than 500 doctors billed Ontario’s health insurance plan over $1 million each.
Hoskins pointed out that the top-billing doctors represent less than two per cent of physicians in the province, but account for nearly 10 per cent of billings.
