Extended Health Care
Our plans provide from 50% to 100% coverage of eligible expenses. There are no overall maximums, but some specific items or services have annual or lifetime maximums.
Employees use health benefits most frequently to cover prescription costs. We offer traditional paper claim plans as well as ASSURE drug card plans, which provide benefits instantly at the pharmacy. Our health plans also cover major medical expenses like paramedical services (chiropractors, massage therapist, podiatrists, etc.), semi-private hospital, nursing care, ambulance, and medical appliances. These extended health care expenses can be covered with or without prescription drug benefits.
All health options include emergency medical assistance and a Voyage Assistance program with a 24-hour global help line. The plan design you choose applies to all employees but individuals may opt out of health insurance if they have a similar plan through another source. If that coverage ends, your employee has 60 days to join this plan.
What does it mean to access Best Doctors® 50,000 medical specialists? It means the right diagnosis, the right treatment options, faster recoveries and better medical outcomes for your employees. It means help for employees to connect with the best medical care and help in navigating the maze of medical information. It means a registered nurse becomes their personal advocate, and it’s included with every Chambers Plan Edmonton employee benefits program we offer.
