About the PSHCP

The Public Service Health Care Plan (PSHCP) is one of the largest private health care plans in Canada, providing benefits to over 600,000 Plan members and their dependants. The PSHCP is sponsored by the Government of Canada, and its members include public servants and other employees of the federal public administration, parliamentarians, federal judges, and pensioners receiving an ongoing pension benefit based on service in one of these capacities. Members of the Canadian Forces and Royal Canadian Mounted Police may also join the Plan so they can obtain coverage for their eligible dependants.

The purpose of the PSHCP is to reimburse Plan participants for the reasonable and customary costs they have incurred for eligible services and products as described in the Plan Document after they have taken advantage of benefits provided by their provincial or territorial health insurance plan. The Plan also provides coverage to members who reside outside of Canada for basic health care services equivalent, as much as possible, to the services covered by provincial and territorial health care plans.
