Accessing Gender-Affirming Health Care Benefits for Staff, Faculty & Librarians 

Benefits offered by each health plan are different. Staff, faculty and librarians can confirm which plan they are enrolled in by reviewing information on the HR Service Centre. 

For some employees, GreenShield coverage now includes up to a lifetime of $10,000 of gender-affirming healthcare coverage. Please read more about this coverage. As a note, this coverage can depend on the bargaining unit or union. Contact your specific health benefits provider for details.

For specific information regarding what is covered under your staff, faculty or librarian health care plan, through OHIP, or another health benefits provider, please contact your health insurance provider directly. 

With regards to coverage of HRT and other prescriptions, this will vary and depend on your specific health benefits coverage. Staff, faculty and librarians seeking confirmation of coverage need to seek the name or Drug Identification Number of each individual drug being prescribed and then confirm with their health plan.
