To obtain reimbursement, the resident must apply to the establishment where the rotation is performed. The establishment has to pay him before the end of the rotation.
It is important to mention that it is only in October each year that establishments are notified as to the budgets granted to them to reimburse these expenses. While the FMRQ does not endorse this practice, a number of establishments wait until they have their budgets before paying residents.
In such a situation, it is essential that residents apply for reimbursement before leaving the establishment and make sure the establishment knows how to get in touch with them (mailing address, email address and telephone number).
It is important for residents to get in touch with the establishment where they were on rotation if they have not received the amounts they are entitled to.
Residents performing rotations under the program may not claim additional travel expenses from the FMRQ or their association.
For any information, residents may get in touch with the Fédération des médecins résidents du Québec at 514-282-0256 or 1-800-465-0215.
