As a new member, how does the Cf medical plan work for family members? What is the cost and are pre-existing medications covered?
1. Regulations governing the Group Surgical-Medical Insurance Plan (GSMIP) for dependants of members of the Regular Force were approved by Treasury Board Minute 758836 of 17 Jul 78 as the Public Service Health Insurance Directives (PSHID) effective 1 Sep 78.
2. This order described the benefits available under GSMIP and details the administrative procedures required to effect participation by dependants. It should be read in conjunction with 56-35, Hospital and Health Insurance Plans Within Canada, and 56-27, Hospital Insurance (Outside Canada) Plan.

aesop081 said:Incorrect. The blue cross card is there for you when you require medical care and DND facilities are not available INSIDE and OUTSIDE Canada. If you are hurt on the weekend and need to go to the hospital/clininc down the street from your house...the blue cross card will cover you.
