Your union secured a $25,000/yr healthcare spending account for unionized post-doctoral fellows in our round of collective bargaining during the summer of 2016. In our round of bargaining in summer 2019, we made the following gains to the total value of the fund:
September 1, 2019: $30,000
September 1, 2020: $40,000
September 1, 2021: $47,500
As such, the Benefits Committee recently voted to increase maximum amount has been increased from $250 per academic year to $300 per academic year (subject to the availability of funds). For information about the increase will be forthcoming.
This account will cover any health-care related expense approved by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), and can be used to supplement items/services not fully covered by your SunLife plan, or items that are not covered at all by the Sun Life Plan. (Click here to see the list of types of authorized medical practitioners whose services are eligible according to the CRA.)
To apply, you must fill out and sign the claim form, attach original receipts, and drop off the claim to our office at KTH B111. Eligible claims will be paid via cheque to the address you provide on the form.
Forms are available above.
For additional information, please contact email@example.com
In addition to the union-administered health care spending account, CUPE has also negotiated access to a more traditional benefits plan through Sunlife. This plan covers many paramedical benefits, and you can use your HCSA to secure reimbursement for items that are either not covered by the Sunlife plan or not fully covered by the Sunlife plan. The Sunlife plan is administered directly through Sunlife, so any querries about the plan should go through them. For your reference, the Sunlife Postdoc benefit booklet is available here.
