|10-digit Unique Client Identifier – Effective December 15, 2016
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada is moving to ten-digit client ID (UCI) numbers to accommodate an increasing number of applicants. Effective December 15, 2016, ten-digit UCIs will be issued to new beneficiaries of the Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP). Client IDs for existing beneficiaries will not change.
As the Medavie Blue Cross Claims system only accepts up to a nine-digit UCI, when submitting claims electronically or on paper for any beneficiaries with a ten-digit UCI, please enter only the last nine digits of the UCI. Do not enter the first digit of the UCI.
The bulletin can be found on the Medavie Blue Cross provider website: https://providerifhpen.medavie.bluecross.ca/wp-content/uploads/sites/5/2016/12/IRCC-10-Digit-UCI-Bulletin-EN_Approved.pdf
|Refugee Protection Claimants Documents
Please note that Refugee Protection Claimants Documents (RPCDs) issued by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada or the Canada Border Services Agency between July 23, 2016 and August 12, 2016 do not include a date issued under the client information or an IFHP effective date under the additional information.
Despite these omissions, clients may still be eligible for coverage under the IFHP. In cases where a beneficiary presents an RPCD without IFHP validity, please verify the eligibility using the Coverage Tab within the Provider Portal before providing services.
