A group plan where everyone benefits

Are Group Benefits your thing? Great. They're our thing too.
Most employers offer their staff a benefits package after a probationary period of either three or six months, depending upon the company’s policies. These packages usually feature a combination of different types of insurance designed to ensure your employees can cover or save on the costs of certain health or dental expenses in times of need. If you manage a business and are looking for an affordable group benefits plan, Green Shield Canada can help. Green Shield’s Employee Benefits packages go beyond traditional health and dental plans offered by most providers. Read on to learn more about the power of Green Shield’s Group Benefits coverage.

Why should I get this plan for my staff?

There are several reasons why Green Shield’s Group Benefits coverage is an excellent choice for your employees.

  • Affordability - Green Shield’s plans are affordable, allowing you to provide your staff with a fully featured package while simultaneously saving money. This helps to reduce the various out-of-pocket costs associated with healthcare.
  • Easier claims processing - Once approved, your employees will gain access to Green Shield’s online portal and the GSC on the GO® mobile app to help manage their benefits, easily submit claims and follow up on claims processing.
  • A worthwhile incentive - Group benefits provide your staff with an incentive to remain working for your business.
  • Help is close at hand - You and your staff will have access to Green Shield’s customer service centre for answers to questions and resolutions to issues regarding plans, application, coverage and claims.

How does it work?

Group insurance plans are initially obtained by company owners. They may also hire a benefits consultant to help choose the best possible provider. In most companies, the plans are offered to employees through the human resources department.

When your business is approved for Green Shield’s benefits coverage, your employees have the option of accepting the plan, seeking out their own insurance policies or using a combination of both if they require additional or extended coverage.

What types of group benefits insurance exist?

There are three types of group benefits plans:

  • Fully featured plans - As suggested by the name, these plans offer the maximum amount of coverage and benefits options available.
  • Level-funded plans - Also known as partially self-funded plans, these plans are designed to be more cost-effective. They are essentially a combination of regular and self-funded health plans.
  • Self-funded plans - In this type of plan, employers use corporate funding to provide their employees with health benefits rather than relying on an insurance company to do so.
