Insurance Provider Delisting: What Chiropodists and Podiatrists Need to Know

In recent years, insurance companies have taken measures to delist chiropodists and podiatrists from benefits claims processing and reimbursement due to false or fraudulent billings for orthotics. Insurance companies are increasingly concerned with chiropodists and podiatrists issuing false claims and taking advantage of benefits available under group plans. Delisting is becoming more common in many healthcare settings and involves healthcare professionals including, but not limited to, dentists, chiropodists, podiatrists, massage therapists, physiotherapists, naturopaths, psychotherapists and psychologists.

As a chiropodist or podiatrist, becoming delisted with a major insurance company may have significant adverse effects on your practice. Delisting may also be accompanied by a complaint to the College of Chiropodists of Ontario.
