Changes to the Quebec Blue Cross Premiums Effective November 1, 2005 and November 1, 2006
The purpose of this notice is to advise you that due to an administrative error, the rate changes to the Quebec Blue Cross premiums (for single and family coverage) effective November 1, 2005, were not implemented in the Regional Pay System (RPS). The rates effective November 1, 2004, continued to be deducted during the period of November 1, 2005 to October 31, 2006, resulting in your premiums being over deducted for that period. Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) has taken steps to rectify this situation and will be issuing you a refund cheque. The table below shows the premium rates for the years 2004 to 2006.
|November 1, 2004||$11.00||$27.04|
|November 1, 2005||$10.45||$25.69|
|November 1, 2006||$14.74||$36.25|
- Single coverage - if you have single coverage you paid an additional $0.55 per month during the period of November 1, 2005 to October 31, 2006. The total amount to be refunded is $6.60 ($11.00 minus $10.45 = $0.55 x 12 months).
- Family coverage - if you have family coverage you paid an additional $1.35 per month during the period of November 1, 2005 to October 31, 2006. The total amount to be refunded is $16.20 ($27.04 minus $25.69 = $1.35 x 12 months).
Please note that the deduction for single ($14.74) and family ($36.25) coverage will commence being deducted from your first regular pay of November 2006.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your compensation advisor.
