Update: The grief counselling program was available until December 31, 2021. If you need support at this time, counselling is available to Manitoba Blue Cross members with Employee Assistance Program or Individual Assistance Program coverage. Reach out for support here. (To check if you have EAP coverage, login to your mybluecross® account.) You may also find support with articles in our wellness library, including Getting through grief.

Losing someone is never easy, but COVID-19 has created even more challenges for those who have had to say good-bye to a loved one. The normal grieving process has been made more difficult with funerals being reduced and postponed.

To help support Manitobans who have experienced a loss during COVID-19 – regardless of whether the loss was due to the pandemic –Manitoba Blue Cross is providing up to three, free grief counselling sessions with qualified clinicians from our Employee Assistance Program. This offer is available to every Manitoban.
