Private health clinics to be regulated
Nova Scotia's health minister has initiated a bill that seeks to regulate private health services. This will mean that new guidelines will bind private health clinics to discharge both insured as well as uninsured healthcare services.

D'Entremont says private facilities will be able to provide only licensed uninsured services. Besides the legislation will also include a contract with the province that will formally permit them to operate; there will also be strict guidelines to disallow any out of turn insured services to patients with payment.

The Halifax area of Nova Scotia houses three private clinics which are already offering services to patients.
