The Portability Plan
If you secure employment that provides you with group benefits, now you don't have to leave your individual health plan behind.
With the Portability option, you can secure your eligibility for continued individual health plan coverage in the future with no medical review. In addition, you receive valuable benefits to top up your new group coverage including:
- $15,000 accidental death benefit, and;
- a 10 per cent discount on out-of-province emergency travel coverage.
You are eligible for the Portability Plan, if you:
- apply within 30 days of the cancellation date of your Alberta Blue Cross individual health plan;
- have been on a medically underwritten Alberta Blue Cross individual health plan for a minimum of three consecutive months;
- are actively enrolled on a group benefits plan that has prescription drug coverage;
- are an Alberta resident with a valid Alberta Health Care card, and;
- are between 18 and 64 years of age.
