57. A locomotor assist furnished to an insured person is insured only if the insured person has returned to an institution any locomotor assist he may have in his possession and for which the Board previously assumed the cost, except where the latter device becomes the additional device granted under the second paragraph of section 50 or subparagraph 7 of the first paragraph of section 51.
Furthermore, a device that is no longer used by an insured person owing to the person’s death or a change in the person’s physical condition must be returned to an institution that operates a rehabilitation centre offering technical aid services for persons with motricity impairment and that holds a permit issued by the Minister under section 437 of the Act respecting health services and social services (chapter S-4.2) or section 136 of the Act respecting health services and social services for Cree Native persons (chapter S-5).
The word “institution” has the same meaning as that assigned by the Health Insurance Act (chapter A-29), the Act respecting health services and social services or the Act respecting health services and social services for Cree Native persons to the extent that it applies to the territory of the Cree Board of Health and Social Services of James Bay, in accordance with the law or laws that apply.
