First Nations Health Benefits/Patient Travel

The First Nation Health Benefits (FNHB) Medical Transportation Program offers our community members with patient travel services. This service is provided to First Nations members registered as Status Indians. The program assists BC First Nation clients, by supplying supplementary funds for travel to medically required health services that cannot be obtained on the reserve or in the community of residence. Services are provided to support patient travel for individuals at any stage in the life cycle on an as needed basis, within the eligibility criteria outlined by Aboriginal Affairs and Development Canada. When patient travel funding is required for children and youth under the age of 19, funding support is provided to legal guardians and care givers.

The program staff members work hard to make healthcare services more accessible to our community members. When we facilitate transportation to receive required medical services, we enhance our community member's ability to achieve optimal health and wellbeing. Services are available to our member Nations.

Information about the policies that guide our work can be found in the Medical Transporation Policy Framework
