«Some doctors do not participate in the Québec Health Insurance Plan. They are known as non-participating physicians. They do not accept the Health Insurance Card as payment for their services and are not remunerated by the Régie. They bill their patients directly and set their own rates. The Régie is not able to issue reimbursements for the cost of their services. » RAMQ
