I was thinking about this today and I'm wondering if we could get Out of Country approval for this? Because it is medically necessary and it's not done in Ontario. Obviously we would need to apply to OHIP - just like we did when we got the surgery. The reason I thought of this is because my daughter has had a couple of genetics tests where they've drawn her blood and then sent the blood off to places in the US for testing. Each time I've had to sign the OOC form so they could get approval. If that was approved I'm wondering if we could get this approved? Thoughts?
I'm not sure it would be approved since we can get Vit E tested but have to pay for it. Hmmm...maybe we should check the schedule of benefits to see if these tests are actually approved in certain cir****tances.
Cheri I the DS!

I didn't know we couldn't get it tested. Cheri may be on to something. I just bought some K at my healthfood store and wasn't even sure if it was the right one or not. Is there a certain kind you are taking? The one I got was K2, and it is a tablet form.
