Frequently Asked Questions
Do we still have caps on UHIP claims?
No. The membership voted to remove the cap on UHIP spending in January 2011 (in light of the new benefits money we won during the last round of Unit 1 bargaining). UHIP claims will thus be processed on a first come, first serve basis for the summer months. There will be no reduction of UHIP care entitlements at present.
I forgot to make a UHIP claim last academic year. Can I still make a claim?
There is a 60 day grace period at the beginning of the academic year in which claims from theprevious year will still be processed. After that, they will be turned down. *Please note, as of January 1st, 2013, we can only honour claims made during the current academic year.* Unfortunately, we do not have the funds to maintain this additional “grace period” going forward.
If you have any other questions, please contact the Union office.
