A press release by the Manitoba Liberal Party proposes that Psychologists be covered under the provincial Medicare plan, Manitoba's equivalent to OHIP. The first part of the plan would see Psychologists across the province funded in a similar way to Physicians. Critical priority areas such as services for children, pregnant women and individuals with depression and PTSD would be covered by Medicare.
For more information, see the press release.
