Partnership Announcement

The Waterfront Employers of British Columbia (WEBC) is proud to announce GreenShield as a partner in providing benefit services to the waterfront industry in BC.

The first phase of this new partnership will be launched January 1, 2024, when GreenShield will become WEBC’s new prescription drug claims administrator.

For WEBC, this is the beginning of our journey towards ensuring Plan Members:

  • receive reimbursements quickly and efficiently;
  • spend as little time as possible out-of-pocket; and,
  • get the answers they need, when they need them.

Through 2024 and 2025 Plan Members will see additional service improvements as we work to provide ‘Benefit services, your way.’

About WEBC:

WEBC is a partner and resource to the waterfront industry in BC. It supports the administration of health benefits & pension trusts, and processes health benefits and pension benefits for approximately 7,000 active and retired Longshore and Foremen members and their dependents.  WEBC prides itself on being member-first. Its team is empowered to go above and-beyond for waterfront workers, while delivering customized services to the Waterfront Industry Trusts.

About GreenShield:

GreenShield is an integrated health and benefits organization and the first organization in Canada to operate as a payer-provider — offering insurance, administering benefits, and paying claims as a ‘payer’ while offering health services such as mental health, pharmacy, and telemedicine services as a ‘provider.’ Integrating both sides of the payer-provider equation enables GreenShield to simplify access to care, remove administrative barriers, and improve health outcomes for its customers.

GreenShield is uniquely structured as a not-for-profit social enterprise that reinvests its earnings and redeploys its services to support underserved Canadian communities via its social impact brand, GreenShield Cares. The company’s overarching goal is to generate $75 million of social impact investments to improve the lives of at least 1 million Canadians by 2025, focusing on mental health, oral health, and essential medicines. As the industry’s noble challenger, GreenShield continues to innovate, evolving its offerings and services to deepen its purpose of championing better health for all.
