The TMU Retiree Extended Health Care (EHC) Plan and Dental Plan are designed to help you pay for many routine and unexpected medical and dental expenses for yourself, your spouse and your dependents.
The cost of the plan is fully paid for by the participating members.
While your provincial health insurance (e.g. OHIP) provides basic coverage, a number of services and supplies are not covered.
Insurer, policy and certificate numbers
The insurer is Sun Life Financial. The EHC and dental policy number is 25180. Your Sun Life certificate number is the same as your TMU employee identification number.
