    The Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association (CLHIA) has collaborated with the Extended Healthcare Professionals Coalition (EHPC) to produce a new guide that will help health care providers understand the private health insurance environment and to help their patients understand the services they are able to receive through their insurance plan, including health care spending accounts.

    This initiative will be continually updated with new information as needed in order to keep it relevant. We look forward to the new tools that the CLHIA and the EHPC will continue to work on, including webinars on insurance matters for health care providers.
