The Union has fielded many questions regarding the move to the Provincially negotiated Blue Cross package that starts September 2017.
There were two main concerns that were discussed at the General Meeting on June 10th.
#1 If a member has paid his/her deductible for this year, that amount applies when requesting further services/prescriptions/glasses for the rest of 2017.
#2 Whatever the members have claimed so far this year continues in September (ie massage therapy limit was $500 is now increased to $750. If you claimed the full $500 so far this year you may continue claiming the remaining $250 to December 31, 2017.)
Attached is a list of benefit improvements from the Provincial plan starting in September 2017.
