First Nations Non-Insured Health Benefits (FNIHB)
First Nations Non-Insured Health Benefits (FNIHB) clients obtain insured services, including chiropractic services, through existing provincial and territorial plans. In some cases, where there are co-payment requirements, FNIHB clients may be eligible for chiropractic co-payment costs.
Each Health Canada region has implemented local policies, which change from year to year, regarding chiropractic coverage.
Under a decentralized management system, each FNIHB regional office (one per province and territory, except for Atlantic Canada where there is one office for the region) has the flexibility and authority to establish its own policies based on regional needs and desires.
Please contact your local provincial FNIHB branch for the most recent information:
