That is weird, x-rays are usually free if you have bc medical- is it because it's a international/immigration related thing? Also, where in Victoria did you do yours, as I might need one done if I get upgraded, and it would be good to know what kind of places do this sort of stuff?
It's not covered because it's for work, apparently.
They give you a receipt so that you can try to get your employer to reimburse you, so I assume you have to pay for any work, not just international. As for place, when I went to my doctor, the form she gave me had a whole list of places- there were about a dozen around Victoria, most of which are located along major bus routes. I did mine across the street from Hillside Centre.[/quote]
Interesting...did you do it through your family doctor? If i need to get mine done, i hope that the walk-in clinic does it, because it also has the x-ray place and blood/etc. lab in the same building on Shelbourne and Mckenzie.
Thanks for the info![/quote]
I feel a little late in comparison to some of you, though time is still on my side
Can someone please fill me in? After my physician completed the health certificate form, I went for my x-ray, the MRI technician indicated that they did not have a film #. How did you provide your x-ray results? My DR mentioned that the final results of the x-ray will be provided upon her request. Is there another way to display the results without a film #?
