FNHA – BBC Declaration

Pacific Blue Cross Health Benefits

On September 16, 2019, the FNHA’s new benefits partner provider Pacific Blue Cross, will now administer on behalf of the FNHA for dental, vision, medical supplies and equipment, and drugs not covered by PharmaCare. Currently, approximately 144,000 First Nations people in BC receive these benefits primarily through Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) – a national program that provides coverage to registered First Nations for a specified range of medically necessary items and services that are not covered by other plans and programs.

FNHA clients and their health care providers will find the new system easy to use, with streamlined requirements for pre-approvals and quick turnarounds for adjudications and payments.
