Compare Benefit Plans
ARTA offers ten different benefit plans, ensuring that each member can choose the plan that suits them best in their lifestyle.
Primary Health is perfect for active employees and retirees under age 65 who are not transitioning from an employer-sponsored health plan. It offers basic coverage at an affordable rate, allowing you to transition into a more advanced plan when you become eligible.
Core, Essential and Enhanced Health include a little bit of everything, offered at higher levels to support you until you qualify for Alberta's Coverage for Seniors Plan at age 65. Each plan offers different levels of coverage allowing you to fine-tune your coverage to best suit your needs.
Working in tandem with Alberta's Coverage for Seniors benefit plan, Total Health, Ultimate Health, Health Wise, Health Wise Plus, ARTARx and ARTARx+Travel offer the widest array of coverage for retirees of any age. ARTARx is only available to Alberta residents and includes complete coverage for prescription drugs purchased through ARTA's plan-owned pharmacy.
