    REQUIREMENT DETAILS
    The PSHCP is an optional private health care plan sponsored by the Government of Canada for the benefit of its employees, pensioners, and their eligible dependents (see membership information below). The PSHCP is operated on a self-insured basis. The contemplated contractor will be responsible for the adjudication and payment of eligible claims in accordance with the PSHCP Plan Directive, Communiqués, and Bulletins and for providing services as specified in any resulting contract. "The terms and conditions governing the benefits of the PSHCP are set out in the PSHCP Plan Directive and the Summary Of PSHCP Plan Changes Not Included In The Plan Directive. The current PSHCP Plan Directive (dated April 1, 2006) is available from the National Joint Council Web site at: http://www.njc-cnm.gc.ca/directive/d9/v9/en.

It is the largest employer-sponsored health care plan in Canada.
