Non-Insured Health Benefits Navigator


Southern Chiefs’ Organization Inc. has secured a Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) Navigator for community members who are having difficulty accessing non-insured health benefits. The objective of the NIHB Navigator is to provide advocacy and support for SCO First Nation members, and make the NIHB program more user-friendly.

The NIHB Navigator is here to help:

  1. Provide support and advocacy for community workers in assisting their clients accessing NIHB
  2. Advocate with the federal government & health professionals on behalf of First Nations to resolve NIHB issues
  3. Support leadership in the work of advocating for policy change within NIHB
  4. Work to strengthen relationships with health providers, provincial & federal partners
  5. Improve awareness of the NIHB program & provide information to clients and service providers on the eligible benefit areas and how to address denials and appeals

Please see attached a booklet titled “Your Health Benefits: A Guide for First Nations to Access Non-Insured Health Benefits”
