No. When you choose a plan, each family member must be covered by the same plan. You pay less as a family than you would as individuals. If you'd like to choose different coverage for the adults, you can apply for 2 different plans as individuals; if you have children, they would be included on one of the adult's plans, but you won't get the discounted family price.

You may include your spouse and up to 4 dependants. If you have more than 4 dependants, please call us at 1-877-SUN-LIFE (1-877-786-5433).
