Federal Health Programs and Policy Updates

Interim Federal Health Program
The IFHP provides limited, temporary, taxpayer-funded coverage of health-care benefits to:

  • protected persons, including resettled refugees
  • refugee claimants
  • certain other groups who are not eligible for provincial or territorial health insurance

The IFHP does not cover services or products that a person may claim under a private insurance plan.

This chart provides details on the different categories of refugees covered and their respective benefit. Providers are asked to call the Medavie Blue Cross Contact Centre at 1-888-614-1880 to ensure the client is covered for the service being provided.
