19.0.2. In order to ensure that the information contained in its local files or index is accurate, up-to-date and complete, or, if necessary, to verify a person’s eligibility under the health insurance plan established by the Health Insurance Act (chapter A-29) or the hospital insurance plan established by the Hospital Insurance Act (chapter A-28), an institution may send the following information contained in a user’s record to the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec: the name, date of birth, sex, address, language code, health insurance number, expiration date of the health insurance card, telephone number, date of death and social insurance number of each user or insured person of the institution, and the names of the mother and father or, if applicable, the legal representative of each user or insured person. The social insurance number may not be transmitted except for the purpose of verifying the validity or facilitating the transfer of the other information.
In the case of a newborn, the institution shall release to the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec the number of the registrar of civil status form on which the accoucheur draws up an attestation of birth as required under article 111 of the Civil Code of Québec.
The Régie must destroy the local files or index containing the information that is communicated to it under this section for cross-matching with its register of insured persons.
