Expansion of Healthcare Benefits for Sessional Faculty

Brad WalchukUncategorized

On September 21st the Benefits Committee met to review suggested changes to expand the Unit 2 health care spending account benefits provided to us. These benefits are secured through collective bargaining. Thanks to the hard work of the Unit 2 Bargaining Team and the support you showed to them through the bargaining process, we are pleased to announce that these suggested changes were approved and that benefits entitlements have been expanded for the 2022-2023 academic year.

Previously, the Unit 2 Health Care Spending Account provided a reimbursement of 80% up to $500 in claims, meaning that each member was entitled to up to a maximum reimbursement of $400 per academic year.

The Unit 2 Health Care Spending account maximum has been increased to $500 without any ‘co-pay.’ This means that members can now claim 100% of the costs for eligible expenses up to a max of $500 per academic year. Please note that this is subject to change at anytime due to unforeseen circumstances. Members who have already submitted claims for this academic year (September 1st onward) may submit an additional claim to be reimbursed for any outstanding balance up to the maximum allowed.
