Due to COVID-19, we will NOT be requiring a urine drug screen and/or MSK and neurological exam to be completed in order to process a MAC iOPS referral.

Also, please note: MAC iOPS is not able to work with patients who are actively receiving health care services for a WCB or SGI claim. Once the claimant has completed his/her treatment sponsored by WCB or SGI, they can begin the MAC iOPS intake process. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

What if my practice is outside of Saskatoon?
