SGPS Health and Dental Plan: Important Info
As of 1 September, 2014 the SGPS has a new Health and Dental Plan. The new plan is a similar plan to our previous plan with several enhancements and additions.

The information contained on this website is for the 2013-2014 benefit year. We will keep the old information on our site until the end of October as people still need to claim under the old plan.

To find information on the 2014-2015 Health and Dental Plan, please visit: http://www.studentvip.ca/sgps.

Please contact the SGPS Front Desk (frontdesk@sgps.ca) if you have any questions about claims or the plans.
How To Make A Claim
Some dental offices, pharmacies etc. will be able to file your claim electronically. In these cases, you will be mailed a cheque and that's it!

If you are not able to file electronically, you need to mail a claim form and your original receipts to GreenShield. The easiest way to do this is to bring your receipts to the SGPS Office and our Front Desk Staff will help you mail the claim. We'll even pay the postage! If you prefer to do it yourself, please see the Health Insurance or the Dental Insurance section of our site.
