Abstract

In an attempt to stop fraudulent use of Ontario's health care system, the province will soon begin issuing health-insurance cards containing the holder's photo. It is not known exactly how much fraud costs the system, but the cost may exceed $100 million annually. Dr. John Carlisle, deputy registrar of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, warns that the government must be prudent in designing a system for reporting suspected health-card fraud.
