Did you know that today’s worker will have, on average, about 3 careers and 8 jobs in a lifetime.*

As a Personal Health Insurance plan member, you have the option to put your plan on ‘hold’ and preserve your current coverage should you accept a job that includes group benefits.

If you have been enrolled in the Personal Health Insurance plan for at least 3 months, you’re eligible for Personal Health Insurance Bridge. Personal Health Insurance Bridge provides you the assurance of protection today against the uncertainty of tomorrow.

By purchasing Personal Health Insurance Bridge when you cancel your Personal Health coverage, you lock in your health status and benefit limits as they are today. Then when you leave your group benefit coverage, you simply activate your old Personal Health Insurance plan with no waiting period or medical review.

Personal Health Insurance Bridge is ideal for:

  • Post-secondary graduates with individual health coverage, who begin a job with an organization that offers group benefits.
  • A contractor who goes back and forth between freelance contracts and working for employers who provide group benefits.
  • A retiree with individual health coverage who takes on temporary employment with a business that offers group health coverage.
