CUPE Local 3908 members can be reimbursed for up to $800/year in eligible health care expenses incurred by themselves or dependents. Eligible expenses are:
Eligibility: Each qualified member, defined under Appendix C of the Unit 1 Collective Agreement as an employee who is employed for more than three (3) months and 100 hours during the academic year, is eligible for a maximum of $800.00 per year. This includes summer employees working 12-week contracts. You will be reimbursed 100% of your expenditure. The eligbility period runs from the start of your appointment to the fourth month following the termination of your appointment.
Other Coverage: Because of the limited amount of funding available, the fund is intended to meet the needs of those members who do not have other coverage. For the purposes of the claim form, 'other coverage' means Health Insurance through another Employer, Spousal coverage, etc. It does not include the Health Spending Accounts that (some) other Universities also provide to part-time faculty. If this is the only type of other coverage that you have, you should indicate 'no' to the question about other coverage on the form.
Important: There is a finite amount in the fund, currently $30 000 per year. This amount is bargained for and is a part of your Collective Agreement. Once the total amount has been spent (e.g, by 38 members each claiming $800) no further claims can be reimbursed. For this reason, it is advisable to submit your claims as soon as possible, rather than waiting until the end of the year (August) to submit them all together. Increasing the size of the fund is contingent upon its full use. In recent rounds of bargaining we have increased the amount each individual can claim.
