When you travel outside Quebec, the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ) provides you with limited coverage.
Although it covers most of the costs associated with hospitalization (diagnostic procedures, nursing care, medication
administered during hospitalization), many services are not reimbursed. Non-reimbursed expenses can include ambulance
transportation, emergency repatriation and prescription medication.
You should also know that your provincial health insurance card is not accepted everywhere. As a result, you may have
to advance the required fees and then submit a reimbursement request to the RAMQ. In addition, the costs incurred
may only be partially reimbursed. If so, you will have to pay the difference out of your own pocket.
