Working with SBIS

Shopping around for health insurance in Manitoba can be a stressful and time-consuming process if you don’t know where to start. We specialize in helping individuals and families find plans that meet their needs and fit their budget. Our plans provide coverage for products and services not covered by your provincial plan, so you have the protection you need when the unexpected strikes.

SBIS offers affordable health insurance plans in Manitoba and throughout Canada. Our plans provide varying levels of coverage so you can choose one that offers the appropriate level of protection for you and your family.


Through our exclusive partnership with Green Shield Canada, we offer three Green Shield Prism programs, including Prism Spectra®, Prism Precision® and Prism Continuum® to Manitoba residents. They include a mix of guaranteed and non-guaranteed coverage. Prism Continuum® is only available to individuals who are coming off a group plan, while the Spectra® and Precision® plans are available to all residents.

Prism Continuum ®
The Prism Spectra program is another option if you are leaving a company group plan or don’t currently have health and dental coverage in place and are looking for comprehensive coverage complemented by high benefit maximums.
The Prism Precision program may be right for you if you are looking for a practical alternative for health and dental coverage for services and treatments that are not covered by the government. No medical questionnaire required, and coverage is guaranteed, even for pre-existing conditions.
The Prism Continuum program may be your best solution if you, your spouse, or your dependents are losing, or have lost your company group health benefits within the last 90 days and are looking for guaranteed coverage even with pre- existing conditions.


SBIS is also proud to offer residents of Manitoba the option of purchasing health insurance from Manulife Financial. We provide access to the Flexcare®, FollowMe™ and Association plans so you can develop a custom insurance solution based on your highly individualized insurance needs. Some program features include

Manulife Flexcare®

  • Array of health and dental insurance plans to choose from, including some guaranteed acceptance that are available without a medical exam
  • Plans with customizable add-ons that allow you to choose exactly the right insurance for your needs

Manulife FollowMe™

  • For those coming off a group benefits plan, FollowMe™ provides guaranteed acceptance as long as you apply for coverage within 90 days of losing your group benefits

A health insurance plan from GMS is the easy, affordable way to protect yourself and your family from the growing list of healthcare costs not covered by your Manitoba government health plan.

GMS Personal Health

A GMS Personal Health Plan can cover healthcare costs your government health plan doesn’t cover, like massage and acupuncture services or medical equipment. You can add dental, drug and hospital cash benefits to any plan to get coverage for what you need. Each GMS Personal Health plan is designed to fit your lifestyle and your budget. And you can add travel emergency medical coverage to your BasicPlan, ExtendaPlan® or OmniPlan®.

GMS Replacement Health

Leaving your group benefits plan when you are ready to retire or work for yourself can be stressful. GMS Replacement Health Coverage plans can take the worry away with guaranteed acceptance and no medical questions. Select the plan that suits your needs, bundled to include coverage for prescription drugs, glasses and contacts, dental care, travel and more.

Fill in the Gaps With a Manitoba Health Insurance Plan

While Manitoba provides health insurance to its residents, the provincial plan covers only a handful of basic services. Each year, the government cuts services from the provincial plan. Manitoba Health Insurance from SBIS can help fill the gaps left by the provincial plan by providing coverage for a broader range of products and services, including

  • Prescription drugs
  • Dental care
  • Eye exams, eyeglasses and contact lenses (on most of our plans)
  • Treatment by a registered therapist (psychologist, chiropractor, acupuncturist, etc.)
  • Ambulance Transportation
  • Home healthcare
  • Travel Insurance
