OMA rejects Ontario proposal to target high-billing doctors with fee cuts



The Globe and Mail

The OMA immediately rejected the province’s offer, accusing Health Minister Eric Hoskins of negotiating through the media. He held a news conference on the proposal an hour after it was presented to OMA leadership.
“The government has shown that it is unwilling and, perhaps, unable to come to terms or even have a civilized discussion with its second most important health stakeholder after patients – doctors,” Virginia Walley, the president of the OMA, said in a statement.
 The OMA, which represents the province’s 34,000 doctors and medical students, has been without a formal contract for almost three years.
 “The OMA will be engaging with our membership to consider our options for responding in a measured and proportionate way. In light of the government’s continued lack of respect for the profession, all options are now on the table.”
