Have you ever wondered the dollar value of how much you use in health care each year?

The CEO of Windsor Regional Hospital David Musyj says people really have "no clue" and he feels each of us should get an annual summary of all OHIP charges.  He feels it would be an "eye-opening experience."

Musyj feels that patients would appreciate the health care system more if they knew exactly how much their treatment costs.

At Queen's Park the Wynne Government says providing these summaries would take money away from frontline care.

The PC's think it is an idea worth pursuing.

France Gelinas the NDP health critic says giving people a physical statement of expenses would be a waste of time and money but she would be in favour of posting the information online where people could access their personal OHIP information.
