A-29 - Health Insurance Act

Full text
22.4. Any amount, except a monetary administrative penalty, owed by a health professional or third person, as the case may be, following a decision of the Board made under section 22.0.1, 22.2 or 50 carries a recovery charge equal to 10% calculated on the outstanding balance of the debt on the date on which the Board, in order to collect the debt, resorts to a recovery measure, such as compensation or the issue of a certificate. The charge cannot be less than $50 nor more than $10,000.
When several measures are exercised to recover a debt, the charge provided for in the first paragraph is applied only once.
The Board may cancel or reduce the charge where it considers that it would not be payable had it not been for an error or omission attributable to the Board or where the amount of the debt that gave rise to the charge is reduced or cancelled.
