Petitioning The Ontario Ministry Of Health and 1 other

To include treatments of Keratoconus under the OHIP Program


This is an important cause in that there are children,teens,and young adults diagnosed with the eye disease Keratoconus.Currently there is no coverage for the cost related to this expensive treatment,non evasive/surgery in Ontario. Patients are having to go to private clinics not our hospitals to have these procedures performed.There are families who cannot afford the cost of this disease treatment that can like many other diseases require immediate attention in a lot of cases.Your support on this very important cause would go a long way in helping to hopefully help bring awareness to the disease,and hopefully have our Ministry Of Health through the Ontario Goverment include this under the current health program OHIP (Ontario Health Insurance Program) that is suppose to be available to all citizens of Ontario!
