Saying he’d like Ontario to follow the lead of eight other provinces, NDP MPP Wayne Gates has tabled a motion that’s calling on the Ford Conservatives to ensure PSA testing is eligible under OHIP.
”By ensuring PSA tests are covered under OHIP, Ontarians will be able to get tested when they are concerned for their health without a cost barrier and after they’ve discussed the decision with their healthcare provider,” says the Niagara Falls MPP.
One-in-eight Canadian men are expected to receive a prostate cancer diagnosis in their lifetime.
It’s the most commonly diagnosed cancer amongst Canadian men and when found early, almost 100% will survive five years or longer.
