Contributions

The Public Service Health Care Plan is funded through contributions from:

  • Treasury Board of Canada,
  • Participating employers, and
  • Plan members.

Contribution rates are reviewed and amended from time to time as determined through negotiations between the Treasury Board of Canada, the employers, and representatives of employees and pensioners. The contribution rates are posted on the website of the National Joint Council.

While the Government of Canada pays the majority of Plan costs, Plan members also make contributions based on their employment status and level of coverage required (e.g. active employee vs. pensioner, single vs. family coverage, and selected level of the Hospital Provision).

Contributions are made on a monthly basis, and appear as deductions on payroll statements or pensioner benefit statements, as applicable. If you wish to maintain your coverage while on Leave Without Pay, you must pay your contributions before the start of your leave.

Impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on the PSHCP - Member Satisfaction Survey  

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Canada implemented temporary changes to the Public Service Health Care Plan (PSHCP), effective March 24, 2020. These changes were designed to help PSHCP members and eligible dependants continue to have access to their health care benefits amid the social distancing restrictions. If you are a member of the PSHCP, please share your level of satisfaction with the information you received about these changes by completing the survey below.

The survey is conducted by SimpleSurvey and will take approximately three minutes to complete. All results are strictly confidential. All data will be stored in Canada on Canadian servers. See our Privacy Policy for more information on the collection and retention of data.
