Green Shield LINK Plan

Green Shield Canada Insurance Logo

Your LINK to great coverage

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. You employer provides you with a link to health and dental benefits, but 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.

Who is Green Shield LINK insurance for?

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 extend far beyond the coverage supplied by group plans.

Green Shield LINK’s health insurance is a good choice if you are:

  • Retired
  • Lost your job and require coverage
  • Transitioning to freelance work
  • Working part-time or on contract

Why should I get Green Shield insurance?

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.

Where can I get a Green Shield LINK plan?
