PDSP COVID-19 update

On June 25, 2020, the Government of Canada announced that it is implementing a temporary extension of dependent children’s eligibility under the Pensioners’ Dental Services Plan (PDSP), in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Government of Canada notes that coverage for some dependent children may expire during the suspension of non-emergency dental services, preventing them from receiving required dental services or treatments.

For more information on this temporary administrative measure, please read the notice from the Government of Canada.
