Transit: Individual Insurance that Takes Over When Group Insurance Plan Ends

News Release

Plan members whose group coverage terminates may now obtain individual coverage with Industrial Alliance. With Transit, they can convert their health and dental care coverage to an individual insurance plan, including their dependents, in the 60 days following the termination of their group coverage, without medical evidence.

Here’s a brief description of the coverage offered under Transit:

  • Drug insurance (not available to Quebec residents) 
  • Paramedical services 
  • Emergency out of province medical expenses 
  • Dental care (optional, and only for those who had dental coverage under their group plan)

To find out more, please refer to the new Transit web page at under Group Products and Services/Group Insurance/Member Services/Transit.

To obtain further information concerning Transit, please contact your benefits advisor or your Industrial Alliance group account executive.
