Notwithstanding the foregoing, fitting or repair services for a wheel chair or a component referred to in section 38 are insured only for an insured person referred to in section 51 or 53, as the case may be.
Furthermore, adaptation services for a device are insured only if they are to install a ventilator or a compressor, where the device is a powered wheel chair and such service is furnished to an insured person referred to in section 53 with a written medical prescription for that service.
In addition, fitting and repair services for a device, component or supplement no longer appearing on a list in the Tariff but for which the Board previously assumed the purchase or replacement cost are also insured services, but only in respect of an insured person who is still referred to in section 51 or 53, as the case may be, at the time the fitting or repair service is furnished.
Finally, fitting and repair services for a 3-wheeled scooter or a 4-wheeled scooter, any of the components or supplements that have already been furnished to any insured person within the meaning of the Health Insurance Act (chapter A-29) by the Office des personnes handicapées du Québec on 12 November 1998 and for which the aforementioned Office has assumed the cost are insured services.
