MÉDIC Construction

The private insurance plan for construction workers

As soon as you hit 300 hours of work at the CCQ in a reference period, you’re eligible for the MÉDIC Construction insurance plan. Your coverage will vary based on how many hours you worked during the reference period, and might include includes:

  • Health insurance: medication, dental care, hospitalization
  • Wage loss (disability) insurance
  • Life and accidental dismemberment insurance

Your MÉDIC Construction coverage depends on on how many hours you worked in a reference period:

Reference periodInsurance period
End of February to end of AugustJanuary 1 to June 30
End of August to end of FebruaryJuly 1 to December 31

The principle is simple. The more hours you register, the better your protection plan.

Basic protection applies as soon as you reach 300 hours. However, you must accumulate 750 hours to obtain full coverage (A). Some trades offer additional protections.
