NOTICE OF UNINSURED SERVICES
To insured persons under health insurance plan
I inform you that I am a physician in a period of training to obtain my first specialist’s certificate. As such, I may not claim, payment of my fees from the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec for services which I render on a private basis, which services are not insured.
If you have recourse to my professional services, you must therefore pay me directly the cost of services which I will dispense to you on a private basis.
You may neither request or obtain from the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec the reimbursement of the cost of the services which you will have paid to me.
This notice is given to you in accordance with the Health Insurance Act (chapter A-29) and regulations thereunder.
