An automated payment service for prescription drug costs is now available in Québec pharmacies. You can therefore procure drugs prescribed for the treatment of your injury without disbursing anything, by mentioning that you receive benefits from the Direction générale de l’IVAC and by presenting your Health Insurance Card.
For drugs for which reimbursement is not authorized directly at the pharmacy, even if they were prescribed in relation to treatment of your injury, you may submit a claim for reimbursement of these costs to the Direction générale de l’IVAC, attaching the receipt for the drugs to your claim.
Please note that the rate of $0.59 per kilometre for reimbursement for travel expenses is applicable for trips made since January 1, 2023 using a personal vehicle when authorized by the Direction générale de l’IVAC. To obtain authorization, submit a medical certificate indicating your inability to use public transit because of the injuries sustained as a result of the criminal offence or act of good citizenship. Otherwise, the cost of using a personal vehicle will be reimbursed at a rate of $0.170 per kilometre.
