Key Principles of CSBT

The CSBT was established on the basis of four key principles that continue to guide the Trust’s ongoing operations.

The principles are:

  • The plans are available on a fully insured basis. Member organizations have no financial liability associated with the plan’s financial successes or challenges. Member agencies’ only financial requirements are to pay their monthly premiums.
  • The plan engages and consults with participating agencies – The CSBT has regular communication with member agencies, and provides participating organizations with opportunities to provide feedback.
  • The plan has no infrastructure requirements – As a non-profit trust, the CSBT does not directly employ staff, own buildings or assets. To meet this mandate, the CSBT has outsourced the delivery of the plan to GroupHEALTH Benefit Solutions and their national network of Partner Advisors.
  • The plan shall be delivered through local/regional service providers – The CSBT utilizes a network of community-based Partner Advisors to deliver person-centered services to organizations across the country.
