EXPIRED OR UNSUBMITTED HEALTH INSURANCE CARD
Excerpt from the RAMQ website, dated February 20, 2020
You must submit your valid health insurance card to be eligible for covered services. You will be required to pay for these services if your card has expired or has not been submitted. To renew your expired card, see the RAMQ website. If necessary, you can replace a lost, stolen or damaged card. You have one year after receiving services to request a refund.
How to claim a refund
- Rectify your situation if your card has expired.
- Obtain the “Request for Reimbursement (Expired or Unsubmitted Card)” from the reception desk.
- Follow the instructions on the form to complete it. It includes two sections: one to be completed by a professional and the other by you.
- Send your claim to the RAMQ.
