Submitting your claims

Extended Health claims

Submit original receipts with a completed Health Services Claim Form for claims such as vision, chiropractor and reimbursement drugs. Once you open the form, enter all requested information then print and sign it. Be sure to attach all supporting documents and original receipts. Mail the signed form, with your receipts, to Alberta Blue Cross at the address indicated on the form.

Prescription drugs

Depending on your plan design, there are two ways to pay for your prescription:

  1. Direct Bill: If your benefit plan includes this feature, your pharmacist will be able to bill Alberta Blue Cross electronically for prescriptions. Simply show your Alberta Blue Cross identification card as proof of coverage when ordering your prescription, and your pharmacist will take care of submitting the claim for payment.
  2. Reimbursement: Prescription drugs may also be paid for directly and then claimed for reimbursement on a Health Services Claim Form. Remember to include your original receipts when submitting the form.

Vision claims

Now your optical provider can submit vision claims online. When your optical provider uses this option, you will no longer need to pay out of pocket for the entire optical claim, then wait to be reimbursed for the portion covered by your benefit plan. Your optical provider will receive payment directly and you will only pay for the portion not covered by your plan. View a list of optical providers who offer this service.

The majority of vision claims can be processed electronically, but if your claim cannot, please pay for your optical services and then use a Health Services Claim form to arrange for reimbursement. Speak to your optical provider for detailed claiming procedures
