Alberta Health Care

Recommended Posts

If anybody from Alberta has been banded at OCC and been reimbursed by AHC do you bring the form with you or do you fill it out when you get back???

I got banded at the OCC, but no luck on the reimbursement. It also doesn't seem to be tax deductable. However it was still the best thing I have ever done for myself.

Fills are pretty good here in Calgary. Went and got my third yesterday.

I got money back from AHC as well. I just filled all the info in myself and included a receipt. I did get a doctors note before I went saying it would benefit my health and included that just in case :)

I also included it in my taxes and got money back ((sorry I dont remember how much)).

My private insurance paid the rest, but that doesnt happen often.

I also got reimbursed by the Province ..... I had OCC email me a copy of the OR Report & the receipt and I completed the Out of Country claim form and sent it all off. I got about $1700 back and then claimed the remainder on my Income Tax - which I got about $7000/$8000 back. I was asked by the Gov't of Canada for my documents (I knew it'd happen) and they reassessed my claim and I had to pay about $100 back to them because they capped the fill amounts. Also, if you can get your doctor to write you up a note stating its medically necessary you should be ok -- I didn't have one but in their letter they made mention of it. Keep your fill receipts! I claimed it in the fall of 2008 and income tax in April 2009 .... I honestly had no issues and the person I was in contact with the Gov't of AB was great to deal with! Oh they wanted a breakdown on the blood work that we had done at OCC but I didn't pursue it further ..... I didn't ask for it and just let it go - I was happy to get the $1700 back! ;0

Good luck! You can always call the Out of Country claims department with the gov't and see what else you need!
