Changes to paramedical coverage amounts

Paramedical services supplement and support medical care and include practitioners such as physiotherapists, chiropractors, naturopaths and others. Currently, the plan covers different annual amounts based on service type (see table below).

Based on what is current practice with other comparable benefits plans, we are considering increasing paramedical coverage to $500 annually per service type per person. There would be a cost to the plan and potential increased premiums to implement this plan design change.
