OHIP pays a small portion of a visit to a podiatrist’s office -- $16 for an initial visit which costs $136. (Your fee would be $120).

 

Subsequent visits are partially covered by OHIP ($11), and the patient pays $65.

 

X-rays may be required and they are taken in our office in a weight bearing position.

 

Note that many x-ray clinics take x-rays of your feet while you are sitting or laying down.

 

However it is more accurate to have standing x-rays since they tell us the actual functional positions of the 26 bones of each foot. When you are standing, your bones are in a different structural position and show possible problems with walking more accurately than non-weight bearing x-rays.

 

Fees for x-rays are $60.
