RAMQ reports directly to the Minister of Health and Social Services.
The Minister may, within the scope of the responsibilities and powers entrusted to him with respect to the use of public moneys, public health, the rights of insured persons to insured services and observance of agreements to which he is a party, issue directives bearing on the goals and orientations of RAMQ. Such directives must be submitted to the Government for approval. Once approved, they bind RAMQ, which must comply with them.
RAMQ must provide the Minister with any information that he may require respecting its operations.
