Public Service Health Care Plan
Note to readers
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Canada has implemented temporary changes to the Public Service Health Care Plan to help members and eligible dependants access benefits while minimizing social interaction with health care professionals.
The PSHCP COVID temporary extension of emergency travel benefits measure that expanded trip duration coverage only applies to members and their eligible dependants who left their home province/ territory between January 17 and March 16, 2020, and are unable to return home. The standard Out-of-Province Benefit trip duration of 40 days, along with the normal plan maximum of $500,000 (CAD) in eligible medical expenses incurred as a result of an emergency while traveling, applies to any member and eligible dependant who travel out of their province/ territory of residence after March 17, 2020.
