Insurance Renewals and Changes

Hello,

It is that time of year again when modifications and changes may be made to your group insurance policies.

As in previous years, the annual enrollment period will be open from November 1 to 30, with changes effective January 1, 2018.

During this period, members who currently have Module A health insurance can increase their coverage to Module B or C, and those who have Module B can opt for Module C.   Any member who wishes to add dental insurance can sign up for Option 1; members who have chosen Module C health insurance for 2018 may add or move up to Option 2.  You may also wish to increase your life insurance coverage with supplemental insurance.

Plan members who have been enrolled in the modular insurance plan since January 1, 2015 or earlier can also opt to reduce their coverage, since the minimum enrollment period for doing so is 36 months.

To make changes in your coverage, you must make an appointment to see Jaime Cousins in Human Resources (SH-122, ext. 5050, jaime.cousins@johnabbott.qc.ca) to fill out the change of coverage form.

Attached you will find the FNEEQ Info-Insurance that lays out the changes that were voted on in September at our General Assembly, as well as past cost increases for comparison.

If you have any questions, please contact JACFA by email, and I will respond as soon as possible.

Thank you.
