Frequently Asked Questions:

Why is CSGA getting involved with health insurance?

Protection with CSGA Health can significantly improve the health and well-being of you, your families and your employees while offering essential financial protection.

  • We care about the well-being of our seed sector family. We know that several seed-growing families and businesses don’t have access to affordable medical and dental coverage. By working with our partners and leveraging the size of our membership (2,500 seed-producing businesses), we can help unlock affordable group rates with additional benefits to your family and employees.
  • This initiative highlights CSGA’s leadership role in advancing the Canadian seed sector. CSGA continues to provide new and innovative service offerings.
  • CSGA Health is offered at no cost to the Association.

Who Can Participate?

  • Anyone involved in the Canadian seed sector can enroll in CSGA Health.
    • Seed growers and their families
    • CSGA Provincial and Regional Branch employees and their families
    • Crop inspectors and Authorized Seed Crop Inspection Services (ASCIS)
    • Seed analysts, laboratories, businesses and their employees

I farm on my own. Am I still eligible for CSGA Health?

  • Yes. We have health and dental plans for individuals, couples, farm families and group plans.

Can I customize the program for what I need on my farm?

  • Yes. The great thing about CSGA Health is that every plan is unique and customized to suit the needs of you, your family, or your employees.

How Does CSGA Health Work?

  • CSGA is the plan sponsor and acts as the contract holder.
  • Each new participant would be covered under CSGA’s contract and hold their own individual insurance contract under the CSGA plan (e.g., sub-contract), allowing personalized billing and customization. Each participant pays David Burns & Associates individually.
