Health Plan

For information on the new Member & Family Assistance Program, please visit the MFAP & Teacher Well-Being page.

The Members’ Health Plan provides Saskatchewan teachers and their families with comprehensive coverage for prescription drugs, vision and other health-care expenses, as well as out-of-country emergency medical expenses. 

This benefit is fully funded by the provincial government, based on a fixed percentage of teachers’ salaries. Teachers do not pay any premiums to this Plan.

The Members’ Health Plan is administered by the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation and Canada Life is the insurance carrier. All claims are processed and paid by Canada Life.

To enrol in the health plan, eligible teachers must submit an Enrolment form to the Federation, signed by both the teacher and their employing school board. For more information, visit Eligibility.

Once enrolled, members can sign in or register for Canada Life GroupNet to submit and track their health claims online, as well as register for direct deposit.


Travel Coverage During COVID-19 Pandemic

The out-of-country medical expenses benefit covers eligible expenses when you or an eligible family member have an unforeseen medical emergency and need to seek medical treatment. Information on travel coverage can be found here. If you’re affected by COVID-19 and experience a medical emergency, your claim will be assessed as usual, whether there’s a travel advisory or not. Being placed in quarantine is not an eligible expense (whether symptomatic or not ), as coverage is only for the treatment of a medical emergency.
