2018 OSC Procedure Codes and Suggested Fee Guide
The purpose of the Ontario Society of Chiropodists Procedure Codes and Suggested Fee Guide is to establish an effective method of communication between Chiropody Practices and Insurance Companies processing Extended Health Care Claims on behalf of their members and Chiropody patients. The Ontario Society of Chiropodists Procedure Codes and Suggested Fee Guide has been published based on the scope of practice within chiropody under normal conditions.
The Ontario Society of Chiropodists Procedure Codes and Suggested Fee Guide is to serve only as reference to enable the development of structured and standardized procedure codes, and fee structures that are fair and reasonable to both the patient and the practitioner. The fees listed within this Fee Guide are not mandatory, only suggested, and each practitioner is expected to determine the fees that will be charged for the services performed.
The Ontario Society of Chiropodists Guide to Chiropody Service Codes and Fee Schedule includes specific descriptions of chiropody procedures along with a corresponding code. Every effort has been made to list all the procedures within the scope of practice. Practitioners who require assistance in determining which procedure code best matches the treatment provided may contact the OSC for direction. A guide to foot care in Canada HERE
