Medical costsQuestion: As a non-resident of Quebec, I’d like to know how much you charge for services at the hospital, such as an MRI exam?

Answer: The Quebec Government Ministry of Health and Social Services decides the rates for hospital visits to the McGill University Health Centre for any of the following patients:

  • Non-resident of Canada
  • Quebec resident with a Régie de l’assurance maladie Québec (RAMQ) card that has been expired for more than six months
  • Canadian resident without a valid provincial healthcare card

These rates are revised annually by the MSSS and are subject to change. Visit their website to learn more about these set rates.

Please note that the MUHC provides health care services to non-RAMQ insured patients in emergency situations only. It does not support medical tourism of any sort and does not take out-of-country requests for health care. In order to become a patient at the MUHC, you must first register with RAMQ then be referred to the MUHC by another physician.
