When you retire, you must decide whether or not to join the QPAT retiree health insurance plan held with Industrial Alliance (IA). QPAT will provide you with information regarding this plan to help you decide.
Make sure to notify QPAT of your retirement date as soon as you have submitted your letter of resignation to your board. QPAT will send you an information kit regarding the retirees’ insurance plan with IA. This kit will inform you about coverage, premiums, and the application process with the necessary forms.
Complete this form and return it to QPAT if you know you are retiring in the current school year. An insurance package will be sent to you.
If you do not join the QPAT plan with IA, you must register with the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ) for prescription medication coverage (Quebec residents). You can find more information on the RAMQ prescription program at RAMQ prescription coverage and follow the links for information that may apply to you.
Retirees who are already 65 at the time of retirement will continue with RAMQ for prescription medication coverage. Their choice is whether or not to join the QPAT plan with IA for supplemental health coverage.
There is no dental insurance coverage available to retirees through the QPAT plan with IA.
