A physician in Ontario may charge a patient for uninsured services so long as the charge is reasonable and so long as the physician provides the patients with a list of the charges ahead of time.
If you are a physician, I suggest that your next step be to confirm this information with a staff member at the OMA.
If you are the patient, then so long as you were provided with a list of fees ahead of time then it is likely that your being charged for this communication is lawful.
No it doesn't and you can certainly check with them, even anonymously but as telephones and email are mentioned there is no reason to think the other new forms of communications would not fall in the same category.
