9.7. A person having received insured services without being entitled thereto must reimburse the Board for any amount paid or reimbursed on his behalf by the Board pursuant to this Act where the person
(1) was registered with the Board without entitlement;
(2) had ceased to be a resident or temporary resident of Québec;
(3) had ceased to be an eligible person under a program administered by the Board pursuant to section 2 of the Act respecting the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec (chapter A‐29) or a person referred to in subparagraph a of subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 10 or section 10.1 of the Act respecting the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (chapter S‐4.2).
In such cases, the Board’s right of action is prescribed three years after the date on which the Board becomes aware of the person’s ineligibility.
However, prescription is suspended where the person applies for a review of the Board’s decision under section 18.1 or contests the Board’s decision before the Administrative Tribunal of Québec under section 18.4, until a final decision is rendered.
