IWK - 505.1 International Patients - Billing/Payments


The IWK provides services to both Canadian and non-Canadian Residents.  Non-Canadian residents (‘International Patients’) are uninsured patients and are required to pay for services provided by the IWK.  This policy ensures the IWK is financially reimbursed for health care services provided to these international patients and that the appropriate controls are in place surrounding the billing and collection of fees for services rendered to international patients.
