We used to consult a map to find how to get to the healthcare providers we needed. Now, we consult online. But just like reading a map, finding and following the most direct and effective route to taking care of our health can be a challenge.
That’s why GSC has introduced Your Access2 Benefits. GSC continually evolves how the health insurance they deliver works, providing financial protection for out-of-pocket costs for prescription drugs, dental work, physiotherapists and more, to giving you access to free support tools that fit today’s healthcare needs.
Access2 Benefits is a new digital platform exclusively available to GSC health insurance holders.
When you receive your GSC Prism plan welcome kit, you will register for your GSC Online Services to
- submit claims online
- sign up for direct deposit (no more waiting for cheques to arrive in the mail)
- check your coverage eligibility
- find providers who submit electronically to GSC (so you don’t have to)
- engage with Change4Life
- discover much more… including free access to healthcare services.
And by downloading the GSC on the Go® free mobile app, you’ll get access to your benefits from anywhere.

Discover digital therapy that improves your mental health with BEACON
Having good mental health is important for our self-care and caring for our families.
Sometimes we can feel overwhelmed. Things can feel out of control and sometimes we just feel down.
Sometimes bouncing back to our “happy place” is not that easy. That’s why GSC now delivers help with BEACON digital therapy — available as part of your GSC health insurance plan at no cost. BEACON is designed to help you bounce back by building resilience to help you cope.
BEACON provides clinically-proven Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), an evidence-based form of psychological therapy considered the gold standard when it comes to helping plan members who
- feel depressed
- feel anxious
- fight feelings of panic
- have difficulty sleeping
- have health anxiety, or
- suffer from post-traumatic stress.
With regular CBT practice and guidance, you will get better at managing the distressing thoughts and behaviours that come along with stressful, challenging situations. Participating in CBT can be difficult at first, but with commitment to therapy, you will see your resilience grow.
You use BEACON wherever and whenever you choose — all on your phone, tablet, or computer — with no appointments to keep. BEACON can be there for you anywhere, any time you need it. You will be guided by an experienced, regulated and registered mental health professional at no extra cost.
To enroll, a participant must be 16 years of age or older. Access to a dedicated therapist is available for up to 12 weeks for extra support and coping skills.
