Benefit Information

Alberta Blue Cross

Alberta Blue Cross is the benefit carrier for Extended Health Care and Dental Care.  Once an employee is eligible for benefits they will complete a benefit enrolment form. At this point the employee chooses their level of benefit coverage and cannot change their coverage until the next choice time.  The next choice time to make changes to Alberta Blue Cross coverage is July 1, 2013.  The only other way you can change your level of benefit coverage is if you have a life event. A life event includes marriage, loss of benefits through your spouse, and the birth of the first child. Details pertaining to Alberta Blue Cross coverage can be found by clicking the preceding link.
