​When providers are not able to bill PBC or Health Benefits directly for eligible items and services, clients will need to pay out-of-pocket and then request reimbursement. If the cost of the item or service is more than what Health Benefits covers, clients will have to pay out-of-pocket for the remaining balance.

Dental, Vision, and MS&E Reimbursements

Reimbursement requests for dental, vision care, and MS&E items and services can be submitted electronically using the PBC Member Profile, or can be mailed to PBC. Requests must be submitted within one year from the date on which the item or service was received.

Online submission through the PBC Member Profile is recommended as reimbursement will usually occur within two business days. If clients are submitting requests to PBC by mail, they must submit the appropriate reimbursemen​t form and all original itemized receipts.​ Clients should mail PBC reimbursement requests to:

Pacific Blue Cross

PO Box 7000

Vancouver, BC V6B 4E1

 Claims for children who do not yet have a Status Number;
