IATSE Canada Health Plan (ICHP)

The IATSE Canada Health Plan (ICHP) was established in 2011. By working together, participating groups get competitive administration rates while retaining plan design flexibility in terms of what benefits each group provides for its members.  Benefits options include health, vision, dental, life, and short-term and long-term disability coverage.

Please consult with your health plan administrator for details on your specific plan.

How to Sign Up for GroupNet
