In addition, we will forward this information the Medical Care Insurance Branch which is that Department in the Health Department of our Saskatchewan Government which is the paying agency for the services. They will have an interest in this information and can order reassessments within certain time periods.

In Canada, citizens may apply for a statement of insured services paid by Medicare on behalf of the individual. The right to this information is guaranteed under HIPA legislation as well as the Freedom of Information Act.

If your billing statement shows fraud, or any kind of unusual pattern, report it promptly to the Ministry of Health in your province. You should also notify the College of Physicians and Surgeons.
