To all members at Montreal-Trudeau Airport
Subject: insurer to change your group insurance plan
The binding agreement with Desjardins group plan to which you are subscribed too via your employment with STAS will end August 31, 2016 at 23h59 59s.
TC Local 1976 and the Local 9554 invites you to begin this transition together with the new insurer of your group insurance plan for the Quebec airport region that will be Industrial Alliance.
Following a vast test of the market, Industrial Alliance has offered the best overall combination of services, financial and management, with a customer approach which will be more interesting. As of September 1st 2016, you can now make your insurance claims online!
Thus, from September 1, 2016, Industrial Alliance will take over. In order for your new coverage with Industrial Alliance to be up to date, you must complete and sign the application form.
In order to complete the transition, representatives will be at the Montreal airport on 25 and 26 August 2016 from 8 am to 19h (location to be determined with STAS) to help you complete your forms and give you your new payment cards. If for any reason you can you be present during these 2 days, please be aware that you may at all times complete and sign the forms after August 26, 2016. The forms must be filled out before making claims to the new insurer.
** It is important to note that if you have claims for expenses before September 1, you must send them to Desjardins. You have until November 30, 2016 to do so!!! Any claims made after 1 September 2016 will be sent to Industrial Alliance. **
The covererages are completely identical to those of Desjardins and your personal claim history will be transferred to the new insurer. So you will not have to pay for new franchises ($ 50). In addition, coverage amounts available at the time of the change of insurer will be provided to Industrial Alliance. For example, if prior to 1 September 2016 you had used $ 800 for dental care after 1 September 2016, the balance of $ 700 will be available with the new insurer. Another example, you used $ 200 for massages, you will receive the balance of $ 150 with the new insurer. Finally, the coverage’s are renewed at 0, on the 1st of day of the new civil year.
We ensured that no member will face any prejudices while transferring from insurer to the next.
