DO YOU NEED HEALTH BENEFITS?
You have the right to health benefits and may be entitled to:
-Eye and vision care
-Drug and prescriptions
-Medical Supplies and equipment
-Short-term crisis intervention
-Mental health counselling
We provide support and advocacy to help First Nations people access Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) they deserve. We also advocate with the federal government and health professionals on behalf of First Nations to resolve NIHB issues and offer support through planning and research by assisting in interpreting policies and improving awareness to access benefits.
The Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) system can be very complicated and frustrating. Many First Nations people are struggling to get access to medications, transportation, accommodations and health care equipment. Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak have NIHB Navigators available to help you.
