Welcome, Employers & HR Professionals!

Individual Health and Dental Insurance for Your Employees Who Need it the Most

Do you have employees who are ineligible for health insurance coverage? Whether it’s because they are part-time, retiring, leaving their group plan or are simply not eligible, we can help you help them – at no cost to you.

One of the greatest things about Canada is our universal healthcare, but not all health needs are covered by the provinces. To protect uninsured employees in the case of injury or illness, many HRmanagers are recommending a reliable insurance broker who will help keep their staff covered, whatever their needs may be.

If your company has a group health insurance rep that you are happy with, please let them know to get in touch with SBIS and we will provide all the information they need on our health, dental and/or travel products. You value your employees, no matter what their status, and it’s important to show them that, if you can’t provide coverage under a group plan for them, you CAN help them find something for themselves. Or if your group plan doesn’t meet all of their needs, we can help with supplemental plan options that work together with their group coverage to increase their benefit maximums.

What’s in it for you?

1 You will save a lot of time by sending employees our way. All you have to do is point them in our direction and we’ll do the rest. There’s no time-consuming research for you to do.

2 You also save resources (and inevitably, money) when you let us do the heavy lifting.

3 You do a lot for your employees as it is. We make your life easier by offering this service. This way, you focus on other aspects of your job, instead of answering questions and researching plans. You’ll look like an expert and a superhero to your employees by providing them with the best possible plan options in the industry.

Simply put, you are boosting your company’s reputation by helping your employees find health insurance they may not have found on their own.

Once we’re in contact with your employees, we will go over all their options and fill in the blanks. We can answer any questions they may have and help them come to an educated decision.

We can offer coverage for employees who

Are retiring or have recently retired

Work Part-Time

GMS Group Advantage for Small Business

When you’re a small business owner, your time is valuable. To simplify the selection and reduce the cost of your group benefits package, GMS offers Group Advantage, a health and dental plan specifically designed and attractively priced for small businesses with 3 to 10 employees.

Your coverage can be as comprehensive and affordable as you like – simply choose the health and/or dental plan that best suits your needs and calculate your monthly premium. No need to wait for a quote! Best of all, Group Advantage plans are designed with premium stability in mind, which means you won’t see a big premium hike when your plan renews.

Choose from Silver, Gold and Platinum health plans to cover health, vision and prescription drugs and add on dental care for services ranging from routine and basic, to major procedures and orthodontic services.

Every plan includes the Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP). Your employees can go online for interactive tools, health and wellness assessments, child and elder care locators and personalized content and education. For even more support, employees and their family members are offered confidential counselling when they face difficulties and lifestyle coaching to help them with day-to-day challenges. GMS wants to help you help your employees to take care of their mental and physical health.

GMS Individual Health Plans

GMS also offers Personal Health insurance plans providing employees supplemental coverage options for everyday health needs and medical emergencies by covering a wide variety of services, such as massage and acupuncture, so they can afford treatment that helps them feel their best. Employees can add prescription drug or dental benefits to complete their coverage. GMS believes an individual healthcare plan is an important part of an overall wellness plan.

For retirees, a GMS Replacement Health Coverage plan can include coverage for prescription drugs, prescription eye glasses and contact lenses, dental care, travel and more. And with guaranteed acceptance and no medical questions, enrolling is seamless and hassle-free.
