She can call her MPP and express her disappointment with the wait times , but that’s not going to bump her up to the top of the queShe has started the process EI sick benefits
What you mean by claimant have to repay the benefits?
She has asked for overseas treatment cover, however, he employer said Insurance is in addition to OHIP. Its not replacement of OHIP.
I'll tell her to contact local MPP. This is preposterous, that for simple surgery she has to wait for so long and given she has been paying taxes since May 2017 for 2.5 years. She is already spending on Vitamin D injections and Calcium, Protein Capsules every 2 weeks. I don't understand it was said healthcare is free (there should be caveat only for emergency), do simple surgery wait times are 16 weeks!
What about EI benefits after 15 weeks?
I shall be taking Vitamin D and Calcium and Protein capsules for her from India
Scylla is right , the story is a bit confusing. If it’s a big 5 bank , they have LTD policies . As well, the employee has to avail themselves to these benefits before EI benefits . The reason being is that the government benefits get paid after the private sector bennies, and private sector benefits pay more then EI sick benefits . But as mentioned before you gave to contact your provider
And you mentioned after the 15 weeks EI benefits ? That’s all the benefits allowed
Are you new to Canada as well? Waiting in the que for non urgent medical treatment is as Canadian as maple syrup & beavers
FYI , urgent life threatening situations are dealt with immediately. I’ve paid taxes for 40 ( FORTY plus years), and one waits for non emergency
