83. The dental, pharmaceutical and optometric services to which sections 70 and 71.1 of the Health Insurance Act (chapter A-29) refer and the replacement cost of an acrylic dental prosthesis provided by a dentist or denturologist following a loss or irreparable breakage are granted as special benefits up to one-half of the rate set by the Board.
A special benefit is also granted for the cost of a medical report produced in accordance with subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 53 or section 70 of the Individual and Family Assistance Act (chapter A-13.1.1).
Special benefits are reimbursed by the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec according to its standards and practices.
The requirements of section 84 do not apply in respect of those benefits, except the benefit in subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of that section that applies for the purchase, replacement or relining of a dental prosthesis.
