Out of Province Reimbursements
How to get the maximum reimbursement for your visit:
Each province reimburses at its own rate. Submit your receipt for reimbursement and keep copies of the receipt. When your province sends you payment, and a remittance advice, the amount that was not paid is called 'not publicly covered', and therefore, qualifies for reimbursement under most employers benefit plans.
Go to your HR contact or benefits provider with the documents from your provincial health insurance showing what portion was covered and paid. Then ask for your benefits to cover the non-covered balance under your 'discretionary benefits' or 'flex dollars' account. Many people are unaware that these benefits exist or that they can apply these unused funds to cover non-provincially-insured medical care, but they usually can.
Most patients will receive close to 100% reimbursement for their care in this way.
