Here is some Information on the Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP) – Starting with Seniors
• The Canadian Dental Care Plan and the NIHB program both cover a broad and similar range of dental services
• There is no change to how First Nations and Inuit access dental coverage through NIHB. Eligible clients should continue to access the dental coverage available to them through Indigenous Services Canada’s NIHB program
• If NIHB clients wish to apply to the Canadian Dental Care Plan, they should claim through the NIHB program first
• Indigenous Services Canada is working closely with Health Canada to ensure ongoing alignment of dental coverage between the two plans, and that NIHB clients can continue to receive all their federally funded dental care coverage through NIHB
