Professionals at two thousand dental clinics and other health-care providers in Ontario have formed a preferred provider network (PPN) that will deliver services to Ontario residents for discounted fees, in a model that will allow employers, other sponsors of group health plans and individuals to achieve savings. FCB Health Network says its contracted providers will be accepting fees for services at 20 to 30 per cent lower than suggested fee schedules from their professional associations.
We all have overextended ourselves as we continue to navigate through these uncertain realities. Governments, institutions, individuals, etc., have sacrificed and endlessly continue to contribute aid during this pandemic. Health care costs have spiraled out of control. Our real GDP has plummeted at an annualized rate of 38.7%. There is currently no form of relief in health benefits. First Canadian Benefits (FCB) is putting forth a primary health network that provides benefit relief through contracted health and dental providers.
