Public Service Health Care Plan (PSHCP) 

The purpose of the Public Service Health Care Plan (PSHCP) is to reimburse Plan participants for all or part of costs they have incurred for eligible services and products, as identified in the Plan Document, only after they have taken advantage of benefits provided by their provincial/territorial health insurance plan or other third party sources of health care expense assistance to which the participant has a legal right.  Unless otherwise specified in the Plan Document, all eligible services and products must be prescribed by a physician or a dentist who is licensed, or otherwise authorised in accordance with the applicable law, to practice in the jurisdiction in which the prescription is made.

The PSHCP reimburses eligible expenses on a 'reasonable and customary' basis to ensure that the level of charges are within reason in the geographic area where the expense is incurred, subject to limitations which are identified in the Plan Document.

Complete details on the PSHCP are set out in the PSHCP Plan Document.

PSHCP members may also visit the PSHCP Web site for additional information.
