Extended Medical Benefits to Family
« on: May 15, 2015, 19:03:50 »
Do you guys know if a service for a child like Registered Clinic Counsellor would be covered under Sun Life or whomever we use for coverage? I'm not sure who to contact to look into this.

All your coverage questions and more.  I would call them, other than one or two small issues I have found their call center pretty decent.

Services of other medical practitioners
To be eligible under the Plan, the services rendered must:

be performed by a practitioner that is registered, licensed or certified—in accordance with provincial/territorial regulations—to practice in the jurisdiction where the services are rendered,
require the skills and qualifications of the practitioner,
be in the area of expertise of that practitioner.
You are encouraged to contact Sun Life prior to incurring expenses to verify that the medical practitioner has the appropriate credentials for their services to be eligible under the Plan.

Eligible expenses
Acupuncture   
Acupuncture treatments performed by a physician.

Chiropractor   
Maximum eligible expense of $500 per calendar year.

Electrologist

(or physician when performing electrolysis treatments)   
Treatment for the permanent removal of excessive hair from exposed areas of the face and neck when the patient suffers from severe emotional trauma as a result of this condition.

In the case where the services are performed by an electrologist, a prescription is required from a psychiatrist or a psychologist to certify that the patient suffers from severe emotional trauma as a result of this condition.

The prescription is valid for three years. The maximum eligible expense is $20 per visit.

Massage therapist   
Maximum eligible expense of $300 per calendar year.

Physician's prescription is required and is valid for one year.

Naturopath   
Maximum eligible expense of $300 per calendar year.

Physician's prescription is required and is valid for one year.

Podiatrist / Chiropodist   
Maximum eligible expense of $300 per calendar year.

Psychologist   
Maximum eligible expense of $2,000 per calendar year.

In 2014, the $1,000 top-up will only apply to expenses incurred on or after October 1st.

Physician's prescription is required and is valid for one year.

Social worker   
Only if you live in an isolated post (listed in Appendix A of the National Joint Council’s Isolated Posts and Government Housing Directive) and no psychologist practices in that isolated post.

Physician's prescription is required and is valid for one year.

Start reading: http://www.pshcp.ca/coverage.aspx

This is Dental Coverage for RegF personnel (and select ResF mbrs)

http://www.forces.gc.ca/en/caf-community-health-services-benefits-drug-coverage/comprehensive-dental-care.page

However for benefits for family are through PSHCP as above.

While there is a dental benefit under PSHCP, it is only for certain procedures and courses of treatment following accidental injury.  For regular dental services there is a separate and distinct plan - the Dependants' Dental Care Plan (DDCP) http://www.forces.gc.ca/en/caf-community-benefits/dependants-dental-care-plan.page

Well, they're not going to get a paycheck unless they join up as well.

Want to be a bit clearer?

Dependants are covered under Public Service Health Care Plan. Basically 80% coverage for most things, you can Google the coverage. Dental is under Great West Life, roughly 80% for that as well.
