Referrals of non-Canadian residents are generally not accepted. If a patient is visiting, assessment and treatment is considered on an emergency basis only.
Non-residents of Canada will be required to pay a $5,000 deposit prior to initiating treatment. Non-residents of Canada who are accepted for initial consultation for assessment and treatment will be defined as self-insured and will follow self-pay procedures.
BC Cancer only accepts referrals from physicians, dentists and nurse practitioners who are licensed in Canada and does not solicit referrals from physicians, dentists and nurse practitioners practicing in other countries.
