With the exception of Quebec, all provinces and territories have an agreement whereby physicians in each province or territory submit claims to their local medical care plan for services provided to residents of the other Canadian jurisdictions. The fees for the services are paid to the physician and the costs are then charged to the resident’s home plan. Therefore if you are a resident of Quebec you will be required to pay upfront for physician visits and you can request a form signed by a physician to submit for reimbursement.
