You are responsible for making any payments to a provincial or private health care plan. Information about the continuation of health care and other insurance should be secured before your contract terminates. In Alberta, contact Alberta Health Care for mandatory basic health care coverage.
If you are a member of the Alberta School Employee Benefit Plan (ASEBP), or other benefit plan, contact the benefit plan or your employer for continuing group coverage to age 65. ASEBP has Early Retiree plans available to members who retire after reaching age 50. To be eligible, you must have participated in ASEBP benefits for five consecutive years prior to retirement.
You can also contact the Alberta Retired Teachers' Association (ARTA), which has a group plan for its members, with coverage available from retirement and continuing after age 65.
