PSAC Public Service Dental Plan
PSAC won a dental plan for our members employed by Treasury Board through a binding conciliation board decision dated October 28, 1986.
While the Public Service Dental Plan covers all employees in the public service and in some separate agencies, PSAC negotiates separately from the other bargaining agents and generally leads the way with demands. The PSAC Dental Plan Board of Management is made up of a chairperson and three representatives each from the PSAC and the employer.
PSAC Dental Plan
Note that the PSAC plan is number 55666 and that for other bargaining agent members fall under plan 55555. While your plan number doesn't, at this time, make a difference in terms of the benefits you receive, it does affect who hears any appeal you might make (i.e. representatives of the PSAC or representatives of other bargaining agents).
Recent improvements to the plan
How the plan is funded
The plan was originally funded through the U.I. Rebate, a 5/12 portion of the refund that was paid to employers by the Unemployment Insurance Commission in recognition of an established sick leave plan and must by law be passed on to employees. Although traditionally the Employer paid this rebate in cash, an employer could legally use the money to provide a benefit to employees. With the introduction of the dental plan, the monies were paid into the dental plan fund and used against the deficit that the plan initially ran. While there is no set review period for the Plan, most agreements have lasted two years.
