To: All BCGEU Okanagan job sharing employees enrolled in Extended Health and/or Dental
From: UBC Human Resources
Subject: 2020 Extended Health and Dental plan premium rate change for BCGEU Okanagan job sharing employees


Your Extended Health plan benefits assist in reimbursing for specified medical services and supplies while your Dental plan assists in reimbursing for dental care costs for services such as exams, cleanings, x-rays, fillings, crowns, bridges, and orthodontia.

To ensure that the rates are at the appropriate levels, the claims experience of both plans was evaluated. As a result of increased claims usage, it was necessary to raise the Extended Health and Dental rates.

The premium rates for your Extended Health and Dental plans are 50% employee / 50% employer paid. The change in premium you pay will appear on your December 31, 2019 pay cheque (premiums are taken one month in advance).

Monthly Rates Employee Employer Total

Single $29.26 $29.26 $58.52
Couple $97.70 $97.70 $195.40
Family $97.70 $97.70 $195.40
Dental Care (including the increase)
