TORONTO, ONTARIO, JUNE 10, 2021 – With a decades-long story centred around innovation and unparalleled customer service, Green Shield Canada (GSC) is widely recognized as a leading health and dental benefits specialist. This summer, a new chapter begins at GSC, building on this health and dental foundation and paving the way to support even more employers from coast to coast.
As small and medium-sized employers continue to pursue the efficiencies of working with one partner for all their benefit needs, there is a growing demand in this market for GSC to offer a complete benefits solution1 (health and dental, life and disability). As a result, GSC is excited to announce the upcoming launch of GSC360, an all-benefits offering for employers with 50 to 999 employees.
GSC360 pairs highly specialized health and dental benefits with top-tier life and disability benefits, underwritten and managed by an industry leader, for a single powerful solution.
“This is not your typical offering,” explains Brent Allen, GSC’s EVP, Group. “GSC360 provides access to the best of both worlds – a comprehensive benefits solution built by true specialists in their fields, with all the streamlined support that small and medium-sized employers need to tackle today’s ever-evolving health landscape.
“Time and again in the mid-market, we have heard the same message: ‘We love GSC’s health and dental services; if only they were part of a full benefits offering.’ Well, soon they will be!”
The key features
GSC360 makes simplicity a top priority – one account team, one proposal, one benefits booklet, one implementation, one bill, and one renewal. Similarly, it represents a path to fewer calls and emails for employers, with user-friendly online tools, access to call centre experts, and seamless support across all benefits.
While prioritizing competitive pricing, GSC360 still provides employers with creative options, including progressive product development with access to emerging benefits such as gender affirmation and pharmacogenetics offerings, and digital health solutions, including cutting-edge mental health therapy and online doctor visits. GSC360 delivers access to data-driven analytics and forward-thinking disability management tools too.
As benefit plan costs continue to rise, GSC360 also makes every benefit dollar count, with SMARTspend™ health and dental strategies, accurate adjudication, and progressive disability management strategies.
“With the imminent arrival of GSC360, it’s time to see GSC in a different light, with the most impactful full-line benefits solution in the industry,” Allen adds. “We look forward to sharing full details in the weeks ahead.”
