As we continue to implement exceptional measures to curb COVID-19 and its impact on Canadians, I am providing updated guidance today on our health care plan.

Following the announcement on March 24 of temporary measures introduced to the Public Service Health Care Plan (PSHCP), the Government of Canada is introducing additional temporary changes to the PSHCP. Taken together, these measures will help plan members and eligible dependants access health care benefits while minimizing social interaction with health care professionals. These temporary measures will remain in effect until non-critical business is authorized to resume or as indicated otherwise.
