Introduction:  

The mission of CHS-MC is to: “improve the quality of life for those affected by hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders through support, service, research, education and advocacy.”

In keeping with the mission of CHS-MC, the Member Services Policy was developed to provide support, in the form of financial assistance, to Chapter members for eligible expenses that are related to living with a bleeding disorder.

Policy Statement:

CHS-MC Member Services will help to defray expenses that are:

  • related to inherited bleeding disorders and their complications
  • recommended for treatment by a member of the Manitoba Bleeding Disorders Program (MBDP) treatment team.
  • NOT covered by other agencies or insurance plans
  • identified by the Member Services Committee as eligible expenses

PLEASE NOTE:

  1. The list of eligible expenses is subject to change and is dependent on the finances of the Chapter.
  2. The Chapter reserves the right to set limits on individual allocations.
  3. Misuse of Member Services may result in suspension of privileges.
  4. The Chapter MAY consider other expenses not listed here. Requests for consideration must be made in writing and be validated by a member of the MBDP treatment team.
  • Such requests will be reviewed by the Member Services Committee and may be forwarded to the Board for a recommendation.  All member information will remain private.
