Dear Members of the British Columbia Society of Respiratory Therapy,

Re: Communication from First Nations Health Authority Regarding Upcoming Changes to First Nations Health Benefits Program

Pacific Blue Cross to Administer Medical Supplies & Equipment Benefits for First Nations Health Authority Clients in BC as of September 16, 2019

On September 16, Pacific Blue Cross will become the new third-party Medical Supplies & Equipment benefits administrator for First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) clients. As of that date, claims for FNHA clients must be submitted to Pacific Blue Cross rather than the Indigenous Services Canada Non-Insured Health Benefits program.

Health care practitioners supporting FNHA clients in obtaining medical supplies and equipment can visit pac.bluecross.ca/provider for more information on eligible benefits.

 

Published in collaboration with First Nations Health Authority,

Sincerely,

BCSRT Board of Directors
