London mom's fight with OHIP comes to a head today
Diane Patterson wants OHIP to cover a neurological consultation her daughter had in Pennsylvania
Diane Patterson's 18-year-old daughter Autumn has Ehlors-Danlos syndrome and two years ago, was treated in Pennyslvania. OHIP covered the majority of those bills, but refused to pay the cost of an initial consultation. Since then, Patterson has been locked in a dispute with OHIP. Today, their case goes before Ontario's Health Services Appeal and Review Board.
The mother and daughter spoke with London Morning's Rebecca Zandbergen ahead of the hearing.
