Our Unique Approach

From day one, we’ve taken a responsive and progressive approach to benefits management.

We’ve never been satisfied with the status quo.

As a not-for-profit organization, we have the freedom – and the expertise - to do things differently; to develop forward-looking initiatives that anticipate trends and embrace new opportunities.

We provide in-house health insurance, pharmacy benefit management and disability management, all under one roof. This also allows us to be more flexible, responsive and integrated in the solutions that we offer.

The result: benefits that deliver maximum value to plan sponsors and members by improving health outcomes, increasing productivity, reducing absenteeism and lowering drug spends.

More Reasons to Choose Us

This is just one of the ways we stand out in Canada’s health insurance industry. Here are others:

We put all of our efforts into improving health and enhancing benefits - nothing else. Our core purpose is to provide sustainable access to quality care to achieve better health outcomes.

Founded in 1943, we’re still growing strong as we continue to adjust, adapt and innovate in a highly complex, ever-changing landscape.

Wherever your members live and work, we provide the same high level of service, care and effective plan management. In addition to our portfolio of private business, we administer various government-sponsored health programs on behalf of provincial and federal governments, including Veterans Affairs Canada, the RCMP, National Defence and Citizenship and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada

Our plan design and delivery combines traditional health care options with self-care and drug management solutions to make every dollar count.

Instead of outsourcing services, we leverage our internal health care and technology experts to provide benefit programs for our clients that improve health outcomes and contain plan costs.

Our Blue Cross brand is regularly recognized by consumers as one of Canada’s Most Reputable Health Insurance Brands. Medavie Blue Cross also has been named to the Hall of Fame of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures and to several of Canada’s Top 100 Employers lists.

Our Holistic View of Health Care

We’re leading the way in helping plan sponsors meet the diverse needs and expectations of today’s multi-generational workforce, while keeping plans affordable and sustainable. How? By taking a long-term, big-picture view of benefits management. This is reflected in the benefits we develop, the partnerships we form and the investments we make for the future. Here are a few examples:

Our industry-leading Patient-First Network actively engages with physicians, pharmacists and the drug manufacturer patient support programs to ensure a simple, worry-free experience for diagnosed members.

Staffed by internal and external experts, our Medication Advisory Panel ensures effective drug spending by evaluating new drugs and identifying those that can have a maximum impact on a person’s life.

A first in Canada, our Managing Chronic Disease benefit gives members access to health coaching and education services, provided by accredited health professionals, to help them take charge of their treatment plan and improve their quality of life. The benefit offers expert supports to self-manage asthma, COPD, diabetes, hypertension and to quit smoking.

Improving the Health of Canadians

How we spend our revenue also sets us apart. As a not-for profit, we reinvest our funds to create even better products for our clients, and to address some of the most critical health care challenges Canada faces through our Medavie Health Foundation. Instead of paying dividends, we form partnerships and fund programs that improve the lives of Canadians, particularly those impacted by child and youth mental health, post-traumatic stress and type 2 diabetes.
