Supporting Your Health Into Retirement

The HBTA is committed to supporting the health of health care employees across Alberta.

We understand with the transition to retirement, people’s benefit needs will change – and each person’s benefit needs will be unique.  Flexibility and choice are important.

The HBTA has partnered with three retiree benefit providers to make available three different retiree programs for retiring employees. The HBTA has secured preferred pricing and access to each of these programs for employees retiring from any HBTA administered program.

Each retiree program is different.   We encourage you to research each of the programs by contacting each of the providers directly.  Each program makes information available online as well as contact centres where program representatives can explain each program and an answer any questions.

We encourage you  to review your options prior to retirement and enroll in your preferred option within 60 days of your retirement date in order to receive the benefits of the preferred pricing and access advantages.

Ultimately the choice is yours.  You select and enroll with the program that best meets your health and retirement needs.


For questions about plan design, coverage & pricing, please contact each insurer directly.

*AHS unionized members must refer to your collective agreement to determine if you are eligible to participate in the retirement options shown above.
