In 2016 Health Minister Dustin Duncan introduced The MRI Facilities Licensing Act and The Patient Choice Medical Imaging Act. This Act gave Saskatchewan residents and others the option to pay for private MRI’s. This allows individuals to make a choice pay for an MRI at Open Skies rather than wait in line to have it in a hospital.
