Dental Plan for Sessionals (Unit 2 members)

Brad WalchukUncategorized

Over the past few years, CUPE 3906 has been in the process of negotiating and establishing a premium-based dental plan for our Unit 2 Members.
We are pleased to announce that we are finally launching the dental coverage for our members this fall.
The coverage provides 100% for most standard basic services up to $1,000 per calendar year.  Access to the benefit is subject to current eligibility, which is determined by Unit 2 employment within the current academic year.  The member cost for single dental coverage is $170.00 for the current academic year (i.e., September 1, 2018-August 31, 2019).
Members will be automatically enrolled in single coverage (unless they are otherwise covered by our Unit 1 or Unit 3 plan).  Participation in the plan is mandatory for Unit 2 members, unless members can provide proof of alternate coverage in another dental plan.  Members can elect to enroll in family coverage (which provides up to $2,000 in coverage per family per calendar year subject to the enrollment period (however there is an additional cost to enroll in family coverage).
