Who can claim Extended Health Benefit (EHB) Expenses?

  • The individual must be registered under:
    • EHB Seniors Program;
    • EHB Specified Disease Conditions Program; or
    • Métis Health Benefits Program.

How to claim an EHB Expense?

  • Claim through your employer or similar plan first.

For example, you might qualify under another plan because you or your spouse work for an employer that provides such benefits or have coverage through the Workers’ Safety and Compensation Commission or a private insurance plan.

  • If the full cost is not covered, complete and submit the Alberta Blue Cross Health Services Claim Form after you have claimed through your other plan. You need to attach your confirmation of payment from the other plan carrier, otherwise your claim will not be processed.

Please Note: If you have access to benefits under an employer or similar plan, and choose not to use them, you will not be eligible for assistance under the EHB Specified Disease Conditions, EHB Seniors or Métis Benefits Programs.


All claims for reimbursement must be submitted within 12 months of the date on the receipt.
