Mandatory Participation in Supplemental Health Plan
Quebec legislation requires that you, your spouse and children must be covered under a group health insurance plan providing at least drug coverage if you are under age 65 and are eligible for coverage under that plan.
You can refuse participation in the McGill Health Plan only if you provide proof ( Confirmation of Alternative Health Coverage ) of alternative health coverage (e.g. through your spouse or through membership in a professional order or association). Submit this proof to the HR Service Centre.
For further details, please refer to the RAMQ website.
