Student Recertification Form

Great-West Life’s (GWL) claims examiners carefully assess the dependent information reported on a claim and will verify if the dependent student is still eligible for benefits. To help ensure that claims are paid accurately and efficiently, the CISVA must notify GWL if there are any dependents listed that are no longer attending school and should have their coverage terminated. For audit purposes, the Student Recertification form must be completed in full to support maintenance of benefits eligibility. 

NOTE: Student coverage is extended for 6 months after the student’s last day in regular full-time school attendance. (i.e. last day in school is June 25th, dependent will be covered from June 25th – December 25th).

Welcome Plan Application (for employees who do not have the MSP coverage)

The Welcome Plan is a temporary supplementary group plan of insurance which provides essential basic healthcare coverage for temporary, new and returning Canadian residents and their family when they do not qualify for provincial health plan coverage in their province or territory. Welcome Plan benefits are available as long as the employee meets all eligibility requirements. To be eligible under the Welcome Plan the employee must be covered under the Extended Health plan, they must legally reside in a Canadian province or territory, and must not be eligible for coverage under a federal or provincial government health plan (ie: MSP) because they do not satisfy the residency requirement in their province or territory of residence. PLEASE PRINT DOUBLE SIDED IF POSSIBLE

Please note that effective January 1, 2008, PharmaCare will no longer reimburse prescription or medical supply costs that were incurred before the date a family register for Fair PharmaCare.
