Under the authority of the director of Out-of-Region Services, the coordinator for the Nunavik non-insured health benefits (NIHB) program plays a major role in terms of access to services by contributing to management of the NIHB program. His or her principal task is to support the director of Out-of-Region Services in management of the Nunavik NIHB program and particularly the regional policy on user transportation.
The Nunavik NIHB program aims to mitigate health inequities for beneficiaries of the James Bay and Northern Québec Agreement (JBNQA) by fostering access to health care, services or products that are not readily available to admissible Inuit children. The Nunavik NIHB program ensures access for JBNQA beneficiaries to several services or products not covered under the health-insurance plan. The coordinator specifically supports the director of Out-of-Region Services in the latter’s tasks in order to:
· guarantee and foster access to the Nunavik NIHB program for eligible beneficiaries;
· maintain management of the Nunavik NIHB program in compliance with the guidelines in effect;
· circulate, publicize and ensure respect for regional policies governing management of the Nunavik NIHB program among the beneficiaries, health institutions and providers;
· promote the program among JBNQA beneficiaries;
· organize and chair the regional committee on out-of-region services (RCORS);
· ensure appropriate management of the human, physical and financial resources under his or her responsibility;
· jointly with the Department of Administrative Services, carry out the entire fiscal process of the NIHB program;
· support the NRBHSS Executive Management in its annual rendering of accounts on management of the NIHB program for the ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS).
More specifically, the coordinator ensures that the regional policy on user transportation is circulated, publicized and respected by the Nunavik institutions. For that purpose, he or she must ensure development of the necessary management or communications procedures and tools in accordance with the regulations in effect.
