Medical Transportation

It can sometimes be challenging to access necessary medical care and the Medical Transportation Benefit offers support with these challenges.

These benefits can provide assistance with the cost of meals, accommodation and transportation to help you travel to a medical appointment outside your community of residence. The Medical Transportation Benefit is intended as a supplement and may not cover the full cost of your travel.

You can access medical transportation benefits if you are traveling to:

  • Medical services covered by MSP or a public health agency

  • Services ​eligible under the Health Benefits Program (e.g., dental, vision, etc.)

  • Traditional healers

  • Treatment at an FNHA funded facility for substance use (formerly NNADAP)

If you require a ride to a medical appointment, please contact the Tsartlip Health Centre at
250-652-4473. We require 48 hours notice to book.
