Subject     THE TERRITORY OF NUNAVUT

With the creation of the new Territory of Nunavut effective April 1, 1999, the Ministry of Health for the Province of Ontario and the Interim Commissioner for the Territory of Nunavut have signed a reciprocal agreement between the province and the territory for medical and hospital reciprocal billing.

Ontario providers who render services to eligible residents of the Territory of Nunavut are reminded to submit their reciprocal claims to the ministry for payment in the usual manner. The provincial code for administrative billing purposes is NU and is not intended for any purpose other than identifying the territory under the interprovincial reciprocal billing arrangement.

The Territory of Nunavut's card can be recognized by the following description:
