Retirement health and dental coverage

While the situation continues to evolve, it’s important to maintain coverage for unexpected emergency situations.


COVID-19 premium reduction

In response to COVID-19, Green Shield Canada reduced premiums in July, August and September 2020 because retired members were unable to access some dental and extended health services due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As dental and extended health care services are now available, premiums also returned to their usual amount in October 2020.

Cancelling coverage

At the moment, current enrolment rules apply:

  • If you’re enrolled in either of the dental plans, you need to remain a member of the plan for a minimum of 12 months.
  • If you cancel and later decide to re-enrol, you’ll need proof of continuous coverage in another plan.

Coverage questions

If you have questions about claims, contact Green Shield Canada by phone at 1-888-711-1119 or visit their website.

We will be happy to answer your questions about enrolment and premiums through My Account Message Centre or by phone.
