If your stay outside Quebec lasts for 183 days or more, you must inform the Régie by sending them a “Temporary Departure from Quebec” form. To obtain this form, you must contact the Régie in order to make a request.

If your stay lasts less than 183 days, and if your eligibility is maintained, meaning you will be able to benefit from covered services outside Quebec. However, it is important to note that in most situations, the Régie will only partially reimburse these services.
