CAS Health Insurance & Aftercare Benefits

Our Children's Aid Society provides basic health and dental care coverage to any child in care (regardless of their in-care legal staus). Prescriptions & Dental Expenses for Youth in Care: Each youth in care will receive a Claim Secure Benefit Card with their group plan on it. This card can be shown at any pharmacy or dentist office and any prescription fee or dental fees will be billed directly to North Bay & Parry Sound Children's Aid Society. There should be no payment required directly from the youth. For any para-medical or medical services (eye coverage, glasses, orthotics, physio-therapy, etc) not related to perscriptions or dental, the youth must contact their Childcare/Youth worker to set up payment. The Childcare/Youth worker will make the arrangements necessary for the medical services to be paid for and received by the youth, without the youth having to directly pay for it. Aftercare Benefits for Former Youth in Care: The Aftercare Benefits Initiative (ABI) is a comprehensive health and dental benefits program for former youth in care. The program provides a broad range of benefit coverage, including prescription drug, dental, vision, and extended health benefits, counselling, and life support services. Eligible youth are former Extended Society Care/Crown wards, former Continued Care & Support for Youth (CCSY) who are between 21 and 25 years of age. If you are unsure if your health care provider accepts CAS Insurance, call before your appointment to confirm.
