NIHB Sioux Lookout – Specialists & Community Responsibilities
Health Canada provides eligible First Nations and Inuit with coverage for a specified range of medically necessary health-related goods and services when not covered through private insurance plans or provincial/territorial health and social programs. Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) include prescription drugs, over-the-counter medication, medical supplies and equipment, mental health counselling, dental care, vision care, and medical transportation.
Non-Insured Health Benefits Specialists arrange travel for clients who require travel arrangements to attend medical appointments.
If you have issues with travel (NIHB) or services provided at the neighbouring hospital, please let us know and we can try to assist you or put you in touch with the appropriate contact. We know it can be stressful when travelling away from home for your medical needs, so we are here to help you on that journey!
