Health & Dental Insurance

The health plan is compulsory (except if you quality for an exemption) and covers pharmaceutical drugs and paramedical services for all active teachers. It also includes travel insurance.

Our collective health insurance plan is a modular plan: each teacher must choose between three options with increasing level of coverage (and premiums) with module A being the least expensive but offering lesser coverage.

The dental plan is optional and provides two options with different level of coverage.

All details can be found in the full contract (111 pages, also available in French). A coverage summary is also available in English and French. Note, several providers have been barred due significant irregularities. Please consult the list on your La Capitale client space.

Claim forms, rates, and other related documents can be found on La Capitale’s website (direct link to 2022 rates).
