Government to covering the Cost of Drivers Medicals for Seniors


The cost of driver’s medicals for seniors 75 years of age or older in the province will now be covered by MCP instead of individuals.


Coverage for age-related driver medical examinations is retroactive to April 1, 2023.


Any seniors who have been charged for this service will be reimbursed up to the $100 amount of the fee code established by the government and the Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association.


Moving forward, physicians will now bill MCP directly for this service.


To be eligible for reimbursement, seniors must provide a receipt indicating that an age-related Driver’s Medical Examination was provided and paid for on or after April 1, 2023. Examinations not related to age, as well as all examinations prior to April 1, 2023, are not covered.
