The Hamilton Medical Centre announced that the Supreme Court overturned the refusal of the Bermuda Health Council to grant Standard Health Benefit [SHB] to them, which they called a “judgment in favour of HIP and FutureCare patients, who stand to benefit the most by having coverage at our state-of-the-art facility.”

A spokesperson said, “The Hamilton Medical Centre – Burnaby Urgent Care and Medical Imaging [HMC] is pleased to announce that on 8 April 2021 the Supreme Court of Bermuda overturned the refusal of the Bermuda Health Council to grant “Standard Health Benefit” [SHB] to HMC.

“The Judicial Review application was brought by HMC and medical centre director Dr. Jay Jay Soares. The granting of SHB as a result of the Supreme Court ruling means that HIP and FutureCare patients will now be able to have the costs of medically necessary scans such as MRI, CT, and X-ray reimbursed by their insurers when carried out at the HMC. ”

Dr. Soares stated: “We are extremely grateful to the Court for granting our Judicial Review applications in respect of what we have always maintained were the Bermuda Health Council’s unfair decisions, and are pleased to be able to offer the standard healthcare benefit.

“Logic, fairness and commitment to justice has been restored to this process solely thanks to the judicial review, the only recourse available to us on this matter.

“The ruling is indisputably a win for the Hamilton Medical Center, but most importantly, this is a judgment in favour of HIP and FutureCare patients, who stand to benefit the most by having coverage at our state-of-the-art facility.”
