Step 1: Choose a plan

Decide which plan you want:

Step 2: Find out if you are eligible

  • You had – but no longer have – supplementary health and prescription drug coverage (and dental benefits if you are choosing a plan with dental) through a group benefits plan with your employer, and you’ve completed this request within 60 days after the date your group benefits ended.
  • You are in Canada when you complete and submit the application
  • You and your family members are Canadian residents with provincial healthcare coverage and were insured under your group plan.
    • Quebec residents must have and continue to have group drug coverage through an employer, a membership in an order or association or, if not, through RAMQ.
  • Your dependent children are under age 25. Dependent children aged 21 to 24 must be full-time students.

Step 3: Gather the information you need before you apply

  • The name of your group insurance company as well as the group plan number and certificate number. These are the numbers that you have used when sending in a claim.
  • The name and phone number of your employer.
  • The birthdates of each person to be included in the application.

Step 4: Payment information

  • If you choose to pay by credit card (Visa or MasterCard) or chequing account, please have your credit card / banking information handy. Choosing to pay with your credit card will let us process your application faster.
