Statement of Benefits Paid
A Statement of Benefits Paid (SOBP) is a list of physician services paid for by the AHCIP on your behalf during a specific period. It includes the date and general type of service, physician name and the amount that was paid to the physician.
The requested SOBP is sent directly to the individual or their authorized representative.
Hospital services do not appear on the SOBP. These may be requested directly from the hospital.
How to order an SOBP
There is no cost for an SOBP for the most recent benefit year (July 1 to June 30) to the current year to date.
To request a current SOBP:
Download and complete the Request for Statement of Benefits Paid form (PDF, 156 KB) and mail the completed form to the AHCIP office.
Or, place an order using the automated phone system:
An SOBP can be requested back to October 1, 1993. There is a fee of $25 plus GST ($26.25) per request for individuals ordering a personal SOBP directly..
Families ordering for more than one person on the same AHCIP account pay only $26.25 for everyone.
To request an SOBP from previous years:
- Download and compete the Request for Statement of Benefits Paid form (PDF, 156 KB).
- Mail the completed form with your payment. Only cheques or money orders are accepted, payable to “Government of Alberta.”
Effective January 1, 2020, the fee for third-party SOBP requests will be increasing to $75 ($78.75 with GST).
