The beneficiary number is required at all times (five-digit number on the beneficiary's Makivvik issued card).
If the beneficiary's card also has an N number (on the right side of the beneficiary's card issued by Makivvik), it means that the beneficiary is covered by the federal NIHB program and NOT the Nunavik program. The beneficiary or his/her guardian must then address his/her requests to the First Nations and Inuit Non-Insured Health Benefits (sac-isc.gc.ca).
To find out if the beneficiary is eligible for the program and what coverage is applicable for the service required, contact NIHB Nunavik: email@example.com
Services are covered according to the program guidelines and criteria for each service. It is the responsibility of the recipient/guardian to pay the balance of the fees for services that are not 100% covered directly to the professional.
In the event that the client/guardian pays directly to the provider for the purchase of drugs, supplies or services covered by NIHB Nunavik and wishes to be reimbursed:
