Extended Health Provision

The Extended Health Provision is part of both Supplementary and Comprehensive Coverage, and therefore applies to all employees, pensioners and their dependants who are participants in the PSHCP.

Members with Comprehensive coverage are not eligible for the Out-of-Province Benefit.

The provision is intended to provide coverage based on the reasonable and customary charges for specific services and products not usually insured under a provincial/territorial health insurance plan (or under the Basic Health Provision, for members living outside Canada).

Maximum expenditures

The products and services that are eligible under the Extended Health Provision are subject to maximum expense limits.

You are reimbursed 80% of the reasonable and customary charges for eligible expenses. The remaining 20% of your expenses is referred to as your “co-payment”.

If you have coordinated your benefits with your spouse and you have Family coverage, the remaining 20% of your expenses can be claimed on your spouse’s plan.

The maximum eligible expenses are identified for each benefit category of the Extended Health Provision.

Impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on the PSHCP - Member Satisfaction Survey??

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Canada implemented temporary changes to the Public Service Health Care Plan (PSHCP), effective March 24, 2020. These changes were designed to help PSHCP members and eligible dependants continue to have access to their health care benefits amid the social distancing restrictions. If you are a member of the PSHCP, please share your level of satisfaction with the information you received about these changes by completing the survey below.

The survey is conducted by SimpleSurvey and will take approximately three minutes to complete. All results are strictly confidential. All data will be stored in Canada on Canadian servers. See our?Privacy Policy?for more information on the collection and retention of data.
