Opting Out of Third-Party Insurance

It is your choice whether to opt out of your private, employer-sponsored, or other public health care coverage. Some of the benefits you receive through your private insurance coverage may not be available through FNHA Health Benefits. For example, First Nations Health Benefits does not include coverage for physiotherapy, chiropractic treatment, massage therapy, or other paramedical services. If you opt out of your private insurance you will lose coverage for these services. ​​​
