The British Columbia Government Retired Employees' Association (BCGREA) is pleased to announce that the Association is now sponsoring a Health & Wellness Benefit Program to future and current retirees, including spouses of deceased retirees to participate in the BC Public Sector Retiree Health & Wellness Benefit Plan administered by Johnson Inc.
BCGREA retirees who are vested in a British Columbia government sponsored pension plan for a minimum of five (5) years and who are age 55 and older are eligible to join the BC Public Sector Retiree Health & Wellness Benefit Plan. Please note you must provide proof of enrolment in the BC Fair PharmaCare Plan in order to be covered under the BC Public Sector Retiree Health & Wellness Benefit Plan for BCGREA members.
This program includes a number of voluntary benefits available, including Extended Health Care (EHC) with Emergency Travel Insurance, Dental Care, Life Insurance and Stand-Alone Trip Cancellation/Interruption Insurance for retirees, their spouses/partners, and dependent children. Each of the benefit plan options is available separately to meet the needs of you and your spouse. The plan details and eligibility criteria are outlined here.
Future eligible BCGREA Members who retire may apply for benefits within 60 days of termination of their existing employer benefit coverage without submitting evidence of good health. After this 60 day period, Extended Health Care benefit applications require evidence of good health, and may be declined.
Any questions about these benefits, or eligibility requirements should be directed to the plan administrator, Johnson Inc., toll free at 1-866-799-0000 or 1-877-989-2600.
