Prism Plans

As a preferred partner with Green Shield Canada since 1995, Special Benefits Insurance Services is proud to offer the convenience and flexibility of the Prism family of products. These product offerings meet the health and dental insurance needs of those who do not have group insurance like retirees who are losing their group benefits, entrepreneurs and students. More and more Canadians are choosing the path of self-employment every year. Still others are employed on a contract basis. The flexibility of these non-standard work arrangements is a sign of the times. However, it often means that these individuals and their families are not covered by group benefit plans. Thankfully, Green Shield Canada is committed to offering insurance products for the changing landscape of the traditional workforce.

Prism health insurance plans

Prism Spectra

The four plans offered through Prism Spectra can provide comprehensive coverage for you and your family. These plans do require a medical questionnaire to be filled out, and may be the best option to cover future health conditions as your health and dental insurance needs evolve and change over time. Prism Spectra offers high benefit maximums and can even be extended to include hospital coverage for an additional charge.

Prism Precision

Prism Precision offers four plans to provide basic health and dental coverage for you, your spouse, and your eligible dependents. Coverage is available for pre-existing conditions, and enrolment is guaranteed without a medical exam. Prism Precision is a practical plan designed to give basic coverage for treatments that are not covered by provincial health insurance plans. It is a great option for those who do not require prescription drug coverage.

Prism Continuum

Whether you are soon to be retired and losing your group benefits, starting your own business or dealing with unexpected job loss, Prism Continuum plans are there to help cover insurance needs in periods of job transition and beyond. Designed specifically for those who are losing group health and dental insurance benefits, Prism Continuum offers guaranteed coverage for those who apply within 90 days of losing their group insurance benefits.
