Retroactive reimbursement of custom-made stockings

A correction has been made to the maximum amounts covered for the purchase of custom-made thigh-high or knee-high stockings. If you are the liquidator of the succession of a deceased person who purchased one of these types of stockings between August 22, 2018, and January 21, 2022, you may be able to obtain a reimbursement of the amount overpaid.

Garments subject to a reimbursement

The garments concerned are the following:

  • Custom-made knee-high stocking, open or closed toe
  • Custom-made thigh-high stocking, open or closed toe

Who can obtain a reimbursement?

Information about the deceased's retroactive reimbursement file can only be obtained by the person responsible for the succession or the heir. You must be able to prove that you are the liquidator of the succession. No information about a deceased person's file can be released without this proof.

Please refer to the table Deceased persons entitled to a reimbursement to ensure that the date of death of the person who purchased one of the garments mentioned is included and to determine the amount due to them.

You have until December 22, 2024, to send us your documents to obtain a reimbursement.


  1. Obtain a copy of the following documents:
    • Will
    • Will search from the Chambre des notaires or the Barreau du Québec (this document is necessary to confirm that the will submitted is the last version prepared by the person before their death)
  2. Write the following information on the documents:
    • Your name
    • Your address
    • The telephone number where you may be reached
    • That this is an application for retroactive reimbursement relating to the lymphoedema program for a deceased person
  3. Please mail the documents to the following address:

    Régie de l’assurance maladie
    Service de la contribution et de l’aide financières

    425, boulevard De Maisonneuve Ouest, bureau 213
    Montréal (Québec)  G1K 7T3

Processing time

The usual processing time is 60 days. We will contact you if your application is incomplete, but you will not receive an acknowledgement of receipt. Please call us only if the processing time is exceeded.

After examining the documents, a letter will be sent to you indicating whether or not the deceased person was entitled to a reimbursement. If entitled, a cheque will be enclosed with the letter.
