Extended Health Care (EHC)

Extended Health Care (EHC)

When Blackstone is designing any Employee Benefits Program, the foundation is always built on two major components: (I) Extended Health Care; and (II) Dental Benefits.  Part of the rationale for these two Benefit Lines being so important is that health and dental related illness are at the core of Employee Absenteeism and Presenteeism.

Even though we as Canadians enjoy excellent healthcare, it is generally not known that there are a number of expenses that are either not covered by a Provincial program at all or need to be supplemented.  Some of the expenses that can be covered in your EHC program:

  • Ambulance Services (Non-Emergency)
  • Drugs, medication, vaccines and other supplies which are only available by prescription
  • Medical Appliances, such as crutches, wheel chairs, artificial limbs, custom orthotics etc
  • Hospital room charges to cover either semi-private or private accommodation
  • Private Duty Nursing
  • Vision Care Expenses (Including both eye exams, frames lens, contacts etc)
  • Paramedical Practitioner Coverages (Massage, Chiropractor, Physiotherapist etc)
  • Out of Country Emergency Travel Insurance (up to 5M per trip)
  • Accidental Dental treatments
