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:
|End of February to end of August
|January 1 to June 30
|End of August to end of February
|July 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.

Your MÉDIC Construction card
Your MÉDIC Construction card lets you know which coverage plan you have and the number of hours accumulated in your bank. It also makes it possible to pay a percentage of your medical costs directly, for example:
- Medication at the pharmacy
- Hospital fees
- Dental fees
For more information on payment of medical fees, to report a change of address, or to get a new MÉDIC Construction card, visit the Commission de la construction du Québec website.
Remember to cover all your family members by filling out the Déclaration ou mise à jour d’une personne à charge form.
