Hospital Provision

The Hospital Provision is available under Supplementary Coverage and Comprehensive Coverage. This provision provides reimbursement for the reasonable and customary charges, up to specified amounts, for the cost of hospital room and board charges other than standard ward charges (i.e. semi-private or private accommodation).

There are three levels of coverage, indicating the maximum amount a member may be reimbursed for each day of hospital confinement:

  • Level I: $60
  • Level II: $140
  • Level III: $220

Every Plan member must choose a level of hospital coverage (default is Level I).

It is important to note that the Hospital Provision does not provide coverage for services rendered in a hospital, and does not cover standard ward charges.

If you would like to change your level of coverage under the Hospital Provision, you must submit a PSHCP application form to the designated officer of your personnel or pension office indicating that you wish to make an amendment.

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.
