The Listuguj Community Health Services in conjunction with the Regie de L’assurance Maladie Quebec would like to inform the residents of the community of Listuguj of the importance of keeping your Quebec Medicare Cards up-to-date.

Be advise that in the event that you do not have a valid medicare card and require emergency treatment at the hospital or a Doctor’s office, the hopital or Doctor will bill you directly.  It is  important to know that Listuguj Health Department and Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government are not responsible for charges billed to you from a result of a invalid  or expired medicare card.  It is the resposibility of every adult to make certain that they keep their medicare cards and those of their children up-to-date.

Your RAMQ card is the best card to have on hand, in case of emergency
