Life and disability
When serious illness, disease or accident strikes, financial security becomes a dominant issue. Your employees gain important peace of mind, despite challenging times, from the financial stability provided by Life and Disability coverage.

Extended health benefits
Extended health benefits provide protection against the high cost of medical services and treatments not covered by the province's health care plan.

Prescription drugs
Alberta Blue Cross's prescription drug plans are designed to maintain affordability while maximizing efficiency, flexibility and convenience. Last year alone we processed over 26.7 million prescription drug claims on behalf of our customers.

Dental coverage is available in many percentage levels and includes diagnostic, restorative, preventative, endodontic and denture services.

Alberta Blue Cross Wellness Spending Accounts support the health of your employees on a holistic basis by providing reimbursement for the wellness‐related activities important to them.
