The FNHA is currently reviewing benefit areas and policies as well as seeking guidance from BC First Nations and providers on how best to improve the Health Benefits system. Working with professional associations, providers and First Nations Health Directors, the FNHA is compiling past feedback and collecting additional input on the existing Health Benefits program. There will be minor changes to improve the Health Benefits program during the buy-back phase, but the FNHA's main priority is to build up the systems and infrastructure needed to take over service delivery. This preparation will allow for more impactful systemic changes to achieve better health outcomes for BC First Nations post-transfer.
The Health Benefits Improvements Working Group meets regularly to strategize improvements to benefits programming during the buy-back period and beyond. The Working Group is pleased to work with the First Nations Health Directors Association on a Health Benefits workbook that solicits Health Director feedback as technical advisors that will help inform the future transformation of this program area. These engagement processes will assist in building and improving the FNHA Health Benefits programs for BC First Nations and providers, to improve health service delivery and to shift the focus of health service delivery for First Nations residing in BC to wellness and prevention.
