Out of Province Travel Assistance Coverage January 2020

Earlier this year, the Ontario government announced that OHIP coverage for emergency medical services required while travelling outside Canada will no longer be available as of January 2020. The GM Canada benefit plan currently provides travel assistance where employees meet all of the eligibility requirements AND where the provincial government pays a portion of the cost. GM Canada benefits has received approval to extend the travel assistance coverage even in the case where the provincial government no longer pays a portion of the cost. An updated GM Out of Province Travel Brochure will be provided shortly.

GM have also communicated this information to Green Shield so that they can respond to inquiries from plan members.

Lawrence and Erika would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Any further questions please call your Benefit Reps.
