HEB Manitoba is Changing!

May 10, 2024
In early June we are moving to a new benefits administration system that will include a new member portal with greatly enhanced functionality.

As part of this exciting change, your employer will no longer provide you with paper forms to fill out. Instead, they will report changes in your employment to us and we will communicate with you directly about your HEB Manitoba Plans. And in most cases, you will be able to complete most transactions online via the new member portal.

If you are hired at or go on leave of absence from a HEB Manitoba participating employer in May, you may not receive paper enrolment or leave of absence forms from your Employer. In this case, we will communicate with you about your Benefits in early June:

If You Are a New Hire

If we have your email address, we will send an email inviting you to use the new member portal to enrol for your Benefits online.

Otherwise, you will be sent an enrolment package by postal mail. You will have the option to complete and return the package to us or to enrol online through the member portal.

If You Started a New Position and Your Eligibility has Changed

If your eligibility for Benefits has changed as a result of your new position, we will send you an enrolment package by postal mail. You will have the option to complete and return the package to us or to enrol online through the member portal.

If You Started a Leave of Absence

We will contact you directly by postal mail to let you know about your options as it relates to prepaying for your benefits while you are on leave. Once you receive your package you will have the option to complete and return the package to us or make your choices online through the member portal.

We have taken steps to ensure you won’t be disadvantaged by any delays resulting from this transition.

Manitoba Blue Cross Coverage

If your Healthcare and/or Dental Plan coverage starts in June you may experience delays in receiving your Manitoba Blue Cross card. Your coverage start date will not be affected. Keep any receipts so you can submit claims after your card arrives.

Thank you for your patience during this transition.

 

NOTICE

My HEB Online Services and the Online Pension Estimator are offline as we implement our new benefits administration system.

Our new member portal and pension estimator will be online in early June.
