Nova Scotia Healthcare System
Nova Scotia's Health Insurance Programs are designed to provide eligible residents with coverage for medically required hospital, medical, dental and optometric services with some restrictions. The Medical Services Insurance Programs are administered by Medavie Blue Cross on behalf of the Nova Scotia government. The Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness provides policy direction for the programs. The Hospital Insurance Program is administered directly by the NS Department of Health and Wellness. The cost of providing these services to Nova Scotians is met through the general revenues of the province. You pay no premiums.
