Improvements to the Union's Life & Health Benefits Plan

The Board of Trustees are pleased to advise the following improvements to the Active and Retiree Life & Health Benefits Plans:


Active Plan:


Behavioural Therapy for Children with Autism

- OEBAC has updated the Plan Provisions, as per the Trustees motion to increase psychology benefit to $4,000.00 for behavioural therapy for autism only and set the effective date September 16, 2020.


Fertility Coverage

- Change the name of the benefit from Fertility Drugs to Fertility Treatment.

- That both the member and their spouse covered within the existing fertility expense be allowed within the current maximum effective January 1, 2021.

- G6 Dexcom will be covered under the Plan with a reasonable and customary maximum of $4,000. It should be backdated to cover recent appeals, to allow those moving from Freestyle Libre System to G6 Dexcom to be covered.
