I had an emergency surgery to remove 2 adenomas in NPC in Tampa Florida by Dr Norman.. I could not wait for an endocrinologist to see me which was to be months. Ohip is refusing to pay. Has anyone out there had surgery in the states and live in Ontario??

    it seems like since its an emergency, they will pay for it. you just have to talk to whoever you are insured by.
