How Saskatchewan Health Pays Your Bill
Practicing inside the plan
Your physician will submit your bill to Saskatchewan Health. A physician, optometrist or dentist should not charge you in any amount in addition to the amount Saskatchewan Health pays for a fully covered service.
Practicing entirely outside the plan
Physicians, optometrists or dentists may practice entirely outside the Medical Services Plan if:
Verification of accounts
Saskatchewan Health periodically checks with patients to ensure we have correctly paid for insured services. This check is not meant to criticize the physician or patient - it is done to maintain an efficiently run public program. If we send you a verification form, please complete and return it if, in your opinion, the services Saskatchewan Health paid for do not agree with the services you received.
Benefits provided to low income families, individuals or families receiving Social Assistance, seniors on fixed incomes and those whose drug cost are high in relation to their income.
