Extended Health Plan (EHP) Changes

As of September 1, 2015, the maximum amount (cap) that the Local’s Extended Health Plan (EHP) program can grant to each member will be $250. Members may receive additional health care financial assistance by applying to the Local’s Financial Assistance Fund (Medical Emergencies) for up to $500 per term.

The EHP benefit program is funded entirely by our employer, the University of Western Ontario, as arranged through a Letter of Understanding attached to our 2012-15 collective bargaining agreement. Because the last agreement ended on August 31st, there is no longer any funding scheduled for the program. The Local manages the EHP and will be diverting funds towards maintaining the program for the near future. We will review the program in light of the results of bargaining.

If you still have receipts from the 2014-2015 academic year to file (September, 2014 to August, 2015), you may still claim up to $499, and you have until the end of September to file your claims.

Please visit psac610.ca or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for details and inquiries about the EHP. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for questions or comments on the ongoing bargaining process. Collective bargaining will begin in October.

(The changes above apply only to TA members in good standing. Postdoctoral Associates: please follow the link here for information about your health benefits.)
