About Axxess Imaging
Imagine being faced with a painful, disabling injury or a life altering medical condition only to be told it will take weeks, if not months, to access the diagnostic equipment necessary to ascertain the source, severity, and remedy of your problem. Unfortunately, this is too often the situation faced by thousands of Ontarians every year as a result of the current and ongoing OHIP caseload backlog and for those falling outside the system. The principal's at Axxess Imaging have over twenty years of hands on experience at providing state of the art, "expedited medical diagnostics" at the finest hospitals throughout Ontario normally within 24 to 72 hours from initial contact. Functioning as your highly knowledgeable and trusted advocate within the complicated and sometimes bureaucratic universe of the medical industry, our years of experience and vast network of contacts places you at the front of the line for private diagnostics, providing expedited access to the best, world class diagnostic equipment and medical professionals in their field.

Third Party Pay Under the Health Insurance Act
A "third party service" is a service that is provided by a physician, hospital or other service provider in connection with a request or requirement, made by a third party, that the service be provided to an insured person, or that information relating to an insured person be provided to the third party. The third party that makes the request or requirement is liable for payment to the service provider for the service provided to the insured person.(14) Regulations to the HIA specifically exclude from the definition of insured services any third party service which is received wholly or partly for the production of a document, or the transmission of information to the third party, if the document or the information relates to:
o admission to/continued attendance in a school/educational program
o admission to/continued attendance in a recreational/athletic club/program
o an application for/continuation of insurance
o an application for/continuation of a license
o entering/maintaining a contract
o an entitlement to benefits, including insurance or pension benefits
o obtaining/continuing employment
o an absence from/return to work
o legal requirements/proceedings(15)
4. Screening: "Screening" in the medical context is defined as the examination of a person with no symptoms to detect unsuspected disease. It usually relates to the detection of coronary disease or different types of cancer. Most forms of screening are not considered "medically necessary" and therefore do not constitute an insured service under the HIA.
5. Non-Residents: Under the HIA, only persons who are "ordinarily resident in Ontario", as well as other persons deemed to be residents under the Regulations to the HIA,(16) are entitled to become insured persons, and thereby entitled to receive insured services without charge. Therefore, medical services provided to non-residents in Ontario are not insured services under the HIA.
Message from Laura Miller, President
For over two decades I've had the privilege to work alongside the best medical minds across Canada specializing in the area of radiology including Toronto's top trauma centres, St. Michael's Hospital, Markham/Stouffville Hospital and Toronto General and more recently the new Humber River Hospital.
Due to OHIP funding limitations and the demand that is placed on the system, long waiting times for non-emergency diagnostics exist. Specializing in “expedited medical diagnostics” Axxess Imaging can typically provide accurate medical imaging within 24 to 72 hours with a written report in no later than a week of receiving the referral by an Ontario licensed medical doctor. How fortunate I am to be involved in the medical industry in such a way as to dramatically and positively impact the lives of thousands of individuals over the years.
On a daily basis, cases are presented to me with a myriad of medical challenges beginning at the patient care level all the way up to assisting major corporations and businesses improve their bottom line. I believe what I do is my calling in life, as I am constantly rewarded by the sincere gratitude shown by my clients and reminded that Axxess Imaging is making a profound difference in the lives of others by just doing what we love.
