Canadian Forces patients
Does not apply to dependents and family
Medical coverage for CF dependents is covered by the province in which they live. They do not receive any healthcare services from the CF.
Has the situation changed?
There had been a comment that Canadian Forces members are now covered by the province. According to this website they are not covered by the province, Lisa Kaita 11:38, 2017 April 25 (CDT) Maybe this had been confused with the #RCMP situation.
Enter "CF" for Province.
Collect their Postal Code as usual. We can use this if we actually want the location where these patients live.
We confirm our data against MB Health data, and Canadian Funded patients would not be on their list. To not get an error for them each time, we need a way to exclude them from the list. This is why they are coded as province = "CF".
RCMP used to have a similar arrangement to CF. They are now covered like everyone else.
