Group Forms

Group Benefits Enrollment forms are used to enroll employees into the group insurance plan. The enrollment form should be completed and signed by the employee no later than 31 days after the date the employee first becomes eligible for insurance coverage.

Most policies require all eligible employees to join the group insurance plan. These policies are considered Mandatory Participation plans. Policies that provide employees with an option to join the group insurance plan are Voluntary Participation plans.

Please select the appropriate Group Benefits Enrollment Form from the list below:

Completion of an individual application gathers personal health information on an applicant in order to determine if the person is eligible for insurance or eligible for higher amounts of insurance.

  • Completion of the Application for Excess Coverage and Late Applicants form is required when an eligible employee does not join the group plan within 31 days of first becoming eligible, or when a group member is eligible for insurance that is greater than the non-evidence limit.
  • Completion of the Individual Application for Optional Group Life Insurance is required if an eligible employee wants to add this coverage to their group benefits. As not all Group Insurance Policies offer this benefit, please check your employee booklet for this coverage before submitting an application.
  • Completion of the Tobacco Usage Questionnaire is required if an insured member wishes to change their smoker status currently on file with Wawanesa Life. This change is only applicable to those persons with Optional Life Insurance under the group policy.
  • Upon termination of insurance with Wawanesa Life, the insured member may be eligible to convert their Group Life insurance. Please email us for details on how to convert Group Life insurance.
  • Use this form to apply for With Evidence Long Term Disability coverage or for Employee/Spouse/Dependent late application. Essentials Basic & Enhanced Health Statement

A Health Care Spending Account (HCSA) allows the Plan Member to submit for reimbursement of health and dental related expenses not reimbursed by their traditional benefit plan(s).

If you are currently eligible for benefits under 2 group plans, expenses must be claimed through both plans prior to submitting through HCSA.

For expenses to be eligible for reimbursement under the HCSA, the expenses must be defined in the Canada Revenue Agency's Medical Expense Tax Credit program. All HCSA reimbursements require the Plan Member to sign up for Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) in the Plan Member Online Claims site.

Expenses can be submitted electronically (depending on the type of expense) using the Plan Member Online Claims site or on a paper claim form. Forms are available through the links below.
