CPA is glad to announce the launch of a guide intended to support health providers whose services are covered or reimbursed through private extended health insurance plans. The guide, initiated by the CPA, was the result of a collaboration among several regulated health provider associations and the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association (CLHIA). It is intended to help healthcare providers understand the private health insurance environment so they can in turn help their patients and clients understand the services they receive through their insurance plans.
