Individuals who have paid for aftercare from L’Asclépiade since October 1, 2015, should contact a Community Health Liaison at the VCH Transgender Health Information Program to discuss their eligibility and the process for reimbursement for this care. Going forward, the charges related to post-operative care provided at the aftercare facility, L’Asclépiade, will no longer be an out-of-pocket expense for eligible patients.
For any new client booking with Montreal, as of today (November 18, 2015) they should no longer have to make a payment for aftercare.
Those who have already booked now through early January will be in a reimbursement scenario and should connect with the VCH Transgender Health Information Program.
