What Personal Health Information Do We Collect?

HEB Manitoba may require personal health information from you to administer the Pension and Benefits Plans, including such things as your medical conditions, test results, medical treatments and prescriptions. We require more detailed health information about members receiving Disability & Rehabilitation (D&R) Benefits than members without a disability claim.

The following examples illustrate how personal health information relates to administering the Plans:

  • Manitoba Blue Cross reimburses you for claims related to health services and dental procedures. 
  • Eligible disabled members may accrue pension service and maintain coverage under the Life, Dental and Healthcare Plans, without payment of premiums or contributions.
  • Should you wish to change the level of your Life Insurance coverage, evidence of good health may be required. 
  • A death certificate must be obtained to process Life Insurance benefits. Additional personal health information is required to substantiate accidental death and dismemberment insurance.

Note: HEB Manitoba obtains specific consent from members when personal health information is required. For example, when a member applies for D&R Benefits, they are asked to sign specific consent forms. Details are provided about what information will be required from the member, their physician(s) and their employer. Only health information necessary for the claims process is collected.
