How to make a claim?

You must fill in this form and send it to the insurance company. The forms can be found here.

Most pharmacies have automated connexions to insurance companies and will handle your claim before you have to pay. However, if your pharmacy doesn’t, or if you are claiming for something other than prescription drugs, here is the procedure.

  1. Pay for the drug or service;
  2. Fill out the form;
  3. Make a copy of the form and receipts (for your records);
  4. Send the ORIGINALS to the company (the address is on the form).
