Retiring or losing your group plan? We’ve got you covered, NO-QUESTION ASKED.Just like a chain, life is full of links. We stay linked to our family and friends, and to the things that matter to us the most. Your employer provides you with a link to health and dental benefits, but what happens when those benefits suddenly end? In order to maintain the strength of that chain, you need coverage while you are between jobs. The same holds true if you are self-employed and manage your own business. A Green Shield health insurance plan is your direct link to coverage that is available when you need it. Whether it’s prescription drugs or specialized medical treatments, Green Shield LINK health insurance helps you cover the associated costs. Best of all, your acceptance for Green Shield’s benefits coverage is guaranteed, provided you submit your application within 90 days of the expiration of your group benefits plan. Additionally, you will not be required to complete a medical questionnaire to receive your coverage.
Many people receive group health insurance as part of their employee benefits packages. If the group coverage proves to be insufficient, you can purchase individual coverage from an insurance provider. The coverage provided by individual health insurance plans usually extends far beyond the coverage supplied by group plans.

There are several plans available under the LINK Coverage banner, including:
The LINK Plans provide access to extended health care, dental, vision, prescription drugs and travel coverage, all with guaranteed acceptance and no medical questionnaire required.
The Green Shield LINK plans provide you and your family with health and dental insurance benefits during transitional periods in your employment history. For example, you might purchase a plan after the expiration of your group benefits from your employer, if you recently retired, or if you are switching from a full-time to a freelance position.
In addition to providing comprehensive health and dental insurance, Green Shield’s benefits coverage plans also have guaranteed acceptance and no waiting periods. Once you submit your application, you will receive your coverage in short order.
If you are interested in purchasing Green Shield Canada health insurance coverage for yourself, you can contact one of our insurance agents today or compare different health & dental insurance quotes online to determine if the LINK plans align with your personal needs.
Just like other Green Shield insurance products, there are three methods of submitting your Green Shield LINK claims. You can send them through the mail with the appropriate receipt(s) and documentation included, online or via Green Shield’s free mobile app, or you can have your medical institution or service provider submit the claims for you after you receive your treatment.
Please note that if you choose to submit a paper claim by mail, it must be received by Green Shield within 12 months of the date you received your services unless otherwise stated.
