If an adult is transported by ambulance, the special benefit is granted if the need for the transportation is certified in writing by a physician or, where applicable, a midwife, or by a person designated for that purpose by an institution to which the Act respecting health services and social services (chapter S-4.2) or the Act respecting health services and social services for Cree Native persons (chapter S-5) applies that maintains a facility to which the adult or dependent child is taken. The special benefit is also granted if the transportation is authorized by a health communication centre set up pursuant to section 18 of the Act respecting pre-hospital emergency services (chapter S-6.2).
The payment application may be made by the carrier, in which case the application must include proof of transportation indicating whether there was a necessity for transportation by ambulance, unless the transportation was authorized by a health communication centre. The Minister pays the carrier and, if the necessity of the need is not established, the adult must reimburse the Minister.
