176. The Minister may make a contract with a private institution contemplated in section 177.1 to remunerate it, for the health services or social services it provides under the contract, at a rate fixed outright by the Government for each category of institutions or of services which it designates.
The Minister may pay instalments in advance to the private institution on the basis of a provisional estimate of the total sums to be paid for the aggregate of the fiscal year of the institution, after deducting a sum equal to the estimated revenues derived from the contributions of beneficiaries in accordance with the regulation made under section 159.
Where the private institution does not have adequate facilities or staff to provide all the services contemplated in its contract, it shall make the necessary arrangements to have the services provided elsewhere, at its expense, and shall itself assume the cost of transportation of the beneficiaries.
