Once enrolled in the McGill Supplemental Health Plan, you will receive a Manulife benefit card. The plan contract number 85210, as well as your name and McGill ID number (plan member certificate number) are displayed on the card.
The Manulife benefit card includes your health benefits coverage information. Show the card to your healthcare professional when you visit the pharmacy, the hospital and your dentist. It is also an emergency travel assistance card.
At the Pharmacy
Present your benefit (also called a 'deferred drug card') to your pharmacist when purchasing medication. You must pay for the cost of the medication up front. However, your pharmacist will submit an electronic claim directly to Manulife for processing. You will automatically receive payment for the total amount covered by the McGill Supplemental Health Plan. There is no need to submit a paper claim.
Emergency Travel Assistance Card
Manulife offers emergency travel assistance (ETA) services, which are administered by Allianz Global Assistance (formerly known as Mondial Assistance). In case of emergency, call one of the telephone numbers listed on the reverse side of your Manulife benefit card. You will need to provide the plan contract number 85210, your plan member certificate number (your McGill ID number) and the emergency travel assistance plan number on the reverse side fo the card (9505).
If you chose family coverage
An additional card will be issued for your spouse, and any eligible dependent children over age 21. Although the benefit cards are issued in your name, your dependents can use the additional cards as all dependent information is registered with Manulife.
Dependent children under 21: You or your spouse can use your drug cards for purchasing medication for dependent children under 21 and for emergency travel assistance.
