Canadian medical specialists are limited to how many new patients they are able to diagnose each month which is determined by how many dollars the Canadian Health Care system has budgeted for. Many Doctors can only work one or two days per week as a result of these budgetary restraints. Meanwhile, people like you are being referred to these specialists after seeing your family physician with your health concern and forced to wait in line for an average of 34 weeks. This means for months and months you won’t know what condition you might have, (which could be getting worse) you may not be able to play sports or do the things you love and the stress and worry over that time will do nothing to improve your life while you wait.
Getting your concern diagnosed is the number one priority. Once your condition has been determined, our public health care system does a great job of addressing your particular needs. As a CustomCare client you are guaranteed access to a valuable program called DSAI (Diagnostic and Specialist Access Insurance). With this coverage you, your family and your employees will have guaranteed access to 10 of the most commonly referred medical specialists within 21 days of receiving a referral from your family doctor. If your specialist requires a MRI or CT scan to complete your diagnosis, one will be scheduled within 3-4 days at no cost to you. It’s a proven fact that seeing a specialist or getting a diagnostic scan within a few weeks of the initial appointment will result in a reduction in the intensity of treatment and reduce recovery time as much as 75%.
At any given time, there are more than 900,000 Canadians waiting for non-emergency surgeries, which will only be performed once they have been fully and properly diagnosed. The cost of lost productivity has been estimated to be in excess of $3 Billion annually as employees miss work for emergency room visits, to see doctors and absenteeism related to their condition.
