Group Benefits – Change to Fertility Coverage

June 4, 2024

The process of building a family through adoption, fertility treatments, or surrogacy can be challenging and costly. GreenShield’s family-building offering allows active members to access benefits coverage that supports them in reaching the goal of growing their family.

The United Church’s group benefits plan covered fertility drugs (80% coverage up to the lifetime maximum of $3,500 per person), and now have been expanded to include:

  • Surrogacy medical services
  • Adoption fees:
    • Member’s legal fees
    • The adoption agency fees
    • Travel fees for the member and their spouse for necessary travel during an international adoption

An updated version of the Benefits for Active Members: Summary of Coverage will be posted to reflect these additions in the upcoming months. If you have any questions, please contact the Benefits Centre at
