When you are first hired at John Abbott, you
may become eligible to sign up for
our group insurance plans. They are an important part of our acting together
as a union to help take care of our fellow members and their families who
end up in the unfortunate position of needing assistance.
For some of these plans, you need to make decisions right away. You have
31 days from the start of your first contract to sign up at Administrative
Services without providing proof of insurability (no medical exam required
or preconditions excluded).
The following group insurance plans are available for JACFA members and
• Health Insurance
• Travel Insurance
• Life Insurance (including Accidental Death and Dismemberment)
• Salary Insurance
• Long-Term Disability Insurance
• Dental Insurance
Group Insurance Renewal -- January 2012
The maximum lifetime reimbursment for Travel Insurance is now $2 000 000.
Group Insurance Renewal -- January 2011
FNEEQ unions voted to change insurance coverage starting in January 2011 by:
- increasing per visit reimbursement for professional fees from $30 to $35
- adding service provider default to travel cancellation coverage, and
- changing reimbursement for generic drugs (90% for generic, 68% for brand-
name drugs when there is a generic alternative).
Health insurance premiums will increase by 2.9% starting on January 1, 2011.
Long-term disability insurance premiums will increase by 12.5% (FNEEQ in 2008 reduced LTD premiums by 10% and last year paid out its LTD surplus
to plan members in rebates).
