Extended Health Care (EHC)

Give your wallet the gift of Extended Health Care insurance

Extended Health Care (EHC) Insurance for dental hygienists is like having a benefits plan. It pays off at the drug store, the optician, a paramedical appointment or even if you have a stay in the hospital.

And, since you're a CDHA member, you get the advantage of group rates.

You'll use EHC coverage when you:

  • Need prescription drugs
  • Buy new glasses or contacts
  • Visit a massage therapist, physiotherapist, or chiropractor
  • Have a stay in the hospital (where you'll want a semi-private or private room)

Why choose CDHA EHC Insurance?

  • You can make claims and check your coverage whenever and wherever it's convenient for you using the my Sun Life Mobile app
  • Quicker reimbursement thanks to online claims
  • Drug and travel coverage cards you carry on your smartphone
  • Group rates, thanks to your CDHA membership

You're eligible if you are:

  • A CDHA member in good standing;
  • Under age 70;
  • Living in Canada; and
  • Covered under your provincial health insurance (plus RAMQ in Quebec)
