Removing Barriers to Primary Health Care Services: Federal Government Exempts Naturopathic Medical Services from HST/GST

Health News1It has been a month since the Federal Government proposed the elimination of HST on naturopathic medical services effective February 12, 2014.  Naturopathic Doctors across Canada are applauding the Federal Government’s decision to exempt naturopathic care from HST as it further removes barriers to primary health care services for Ontarians.  States the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors, this exemption “will provide greater access for patients seeking a proactive approach to their health care needs and those looking for individualized, whole person approach to prevent and treat health issues…resulting in improved outcomes in some of the most chronic and costly areas of the healthcare system.”

Love Your Body, Change Your Life

I attended the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND) Spring Conference and Annual General Meeting last weekend.  Naturopathic Doctors from all over Ontario gathered to discuss the changes surrounding the set up of a new College of Naturopathic Doctors, with expected proclamation in March 2013.  The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLT) recognizes the care Naturopathic Doctors are providing to their patients is helping alleviate many issues associated with our publicly-funded health care system and Naturopathic Doctors everywhere are proud to be part of the solution!
