Transportation by Ambulance

Ambulance transport costs are reimbursable when it is an emergency (that is, following a sudden and unpredictable event) or when recommended by a physician. The transport must be to the closest hospital. In certain emergency situations, the cost of transportation by ambulance airplane may be reimbursed; an attestation by a physician indicating that this mode of transportation is medically necessary and that no other mode of transport could be used is required.

The Bulletin MÉDIC Construction for each plan lists the reimbursable amounts.

Adapted transport

Adapted transport between the home and the hospital (or clinic) is reimbursable upon recommendation by a physician confirming that another means of transport cannot be used.


  • MÉDIC Construction does not reimburse the cost of transportation between hospitals. If the transfer is authorized by the hospital with confirmation by the attending physician, the transportation costs are paid by the hospital. If the hospital does not authorize the transportation, the cost must be paid by the insured.
  • MÉDIC Construction does not reimburse the cost of taxis.

Reimbursement of expenditures

The ambulance services declaration form must be provided to MÉDIC Construction to obtain reimbursement for costs incurred. Without this form, the worker must supply the following information about the transport: date and time of pick-up, destination, costs, and reason for transport.

A claim for emergency transport costs must be made using the Health and Professional Care Claim Form.

Specific conditions, limitations, and exclusions other than those mentioned above may apply to the reimbursement of certain types of coverage; only the Règlement sur les régimes complémentaires d'avantages sociaux dans l'industrie de la construction has legal value.
