Review of Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) Program
In 2014, the federal Minister of Health agreed to a joint review of the Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) program conducted in partnership between the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) and the First Nations and Inuit Health Branch (FNIHB) who administer the NIHB program.
The AFN and FNIHB have undertaken a Joint Review of the Non-Insured Health Benefits program with the objective of:
- Enhancing client access to benefits;
- Identifying and addressing gaps in benefits;
- Streamlining service delivery to be more responsive to client needs; and
- Increasing Program efficiencies.
Members of Nishnawbe Aski Nation have the opportunity to participate in the NIHB review and provide input by participating in the following surveys:
