The Saskatchewan Physician Payment Schedule (Section N preamble) states that gender reassignment surgery (GRS) is insured only if performed on patients for whom surgery has been recommended by an authority recognized by the Medical Services Branch.  The Ministry of Health is interested in expanding the number of Saskatchewan physicians serving in the role of recognized authority.

 If a family physician has an interest in serving in this capacity, the Ministry would like to discuss the current process with you.  Please contact Ms. Janet Jurcic, Senior Insured Services Consultant, and Ms. Denise Grad, A/Director Insured Services at 306-787-3475 or by email at or
