Details on potential changes to extended health coverage

Learn about the potential changes the board is considering for retirement group health benefits.


Changing the co-insurance level

The board is considering changing the co-insurance level for prescription drugs, meaning the percentage the plan covers and the percentage that members pay.

Specifically, co-insurance is the percentage of the eligible amount the plan will pay for a claim. For example, the current co-insurance for health claims the plan will reimburse is 70 per cent.
