Public Service Health Care Plan

Enroll and amend Public Service Health Care Plan coverage using Phoenix self-service.

Note:  In certain circumstances the employee can’t make changes using Phoenix self-service to their Public Service Health Care Plan coverage (example: while on unpaid leave or unable to access self-service).  In these scenarios, the Pay Centre will perform any actions on behalf of the employee (an employee who is unable to access self-service must have made reasonable efforts to do so prior to requesting assistance from the Pay Centre).

Send the appropriate forms for enrollment in any voluntary insurance plans (or other benefits not available for enrollment through Phoenix self-service) by encrypted email, fax or mail to the Pay Centre: Mail facility, including a pay action request form PSPC 446-5E duly completed.
