Cancelling Coverage After Enrolment in the Healthcare and/or Dental Plans

If you are enrolled in the HEB Manitoba Healthcare and/or Dental Plans but later obtain coverage under an alternate plan (e.g., your spouse/common-law partner’s plan), you can cancel your HEB Manitoba Plan coverage by submitting a Change Form through your employer. The request to cancel coverage must be declared within 60 days from the date you acquire coverage under an alternate plan. If the request is made after 60 days from the date you acquire alternate coverage, you must remain in the HEB Manitoba Plan, but you can coordinate your HEB Manitoba Plan benefits with those offered under the other group plan. See the Coordination of Benefits section for details.

If you waive coverage because you have acquired coverage under an alternate group plan, you will not be permitted to join the HEB Manitoba Healthcare and/or Dental Plans and coordinate benefits between two plans. You will not be permitted to join the HEB Manitoba Healthcare and/or Dental Plans until you lose coverage under the alternate group plan.
