Ministry of Health update: Palliative Care Benefits Program

The Ministry of Health recently announced changes to the Palliative Benefits Care program.

posted March 27, 2013

The Palliative Care Benefits Program criteria is that only physicians are authorized to certify that a patient meets the criteria for assistance under the Program. A recent review of the Program confirmed this existing requirement. This review also resulted in a number of changes to the program registration process, including increased scrutiny of all Palliative Care Benefits application forms to ensure they meet all requirements, including certification of patient eligibility by a physician.
