The IFHP does not cover the cost of health-care services or products that a person may claim (even in part) under a public or private health insurance plan. The IFHP does not coordinate benefits with other insurance plans/programs so co-payments aren’t possible.

When you plan on making a virtual appointment with our health care provider, you must have your Interim Federal Health Program Certificate or your Refugee Protection Claimant Document with you.

Our patient care team will verify your IFHP documents. Upon verification and eligibility, you do not need to pay for your virtual visit. Our clinic will receive payment from Medavie Blue Cross on your behalf.
