22.3. Where a decision of the Board is not contested by the health professional before the Superior Court or the Court of Québec according to their respective jurisdictions, pursuant to the fifth paragraph of section 22.2 and the Board finds itself in a situation such that it can neither refuse payment for the services concerned by its decision nor have them reimbursed by compensation or otherwise, the Board may, at the expiry of the time for filing an appeal under the fifth paragraph of section 22.2, issue a certificate stating the name and address of the health professional and attesting the amount of the debt and the health professional’s failure to contest the Board’s decision before the competent court. On the filing of the certificate at the office of that court, the decision becomes enforceable as if it were a final judgment of that court, is not subject to appeal, and has all the effects of such a judgment.
The second paragraph of section 18.3.2 applies, with the necessary modifications, to the amount owed by the health professional.
