Notice – Temporary measures for the Interim Federal Health Program

November 4, 2014—Temporary measures for the Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP) will  come into effect as of November 5, 2014, to address the findings of a July 2014 Federal Court decision.

While the matter is being appealed, the Government will implement temporary health-care measures as of November 5, 2014, consistent with the Federal Court’s ruling.

Under the temporary measures, most beneficiaries are eligible to receive coverage for hospital, medical and laboratory services, including pre- and post-natal care as well as laboratory and diagnostic services. This coverage is similar to what Canadians get under provincial and territorial health-care plans.
