This message is being sent on behalf of the Board of Trustees of the ETFO Employee Life and Health Trust (ELHT). 
 
  Important information regarding upcoming changes to the
ETFO ELHT Benefits Plan

  D ear Plan Member,
 
The ETFO ELHT Board wishes to advise you of changes effective during the 2019-2020 Benefits Year.

The ETFO ELHT Board of Trustees is entrusted with the care and financial accountability of the ETFO ELHT Benefits Plan. As such, the Board of Trustees regularly monitors the Benefits Plan relative to available funding and makes adjustments as needed, to ensure we are providing valuable benefits to members within the available funding. The funding is negotiated by the parties to the agreement (i.e., ETFO, Crown, OPSBA).

With this in mind, there will be some changes coming to your plan . These changes are largely administrative and, in most cases, will have a minimal impact on members. However, they are important to help keep the benefits plan sustainable – and, in the case of the specialty drug changes, will improve member service.

In addition, the ETFO ELHT 2018 Annual Report provides an overview of the current financial position of the ELHT Benefit Plans. The report can be viewed by clicking here and is also posted on the ETFO ELHT website. 

If you have any questions about any of the changes that affect you directly, please contact Suzanne Gill, Benefits Coordinator, ETFO Employee Life and Health Trust (ELHT) at etfo-elht@etfo.org or by phone at 416-962-3836 extension 3830 (Toll free 1-888-838-3836 extension 3830).

Upcoming Survey

Additional changes may be required during 2020, pending collective bargaining and future claims experience. To help guide future plan decisions, we will be surveying ETFO ELHT plan members in early September 2019.  T he ETFO ELHT Board of Trustees will be asking you to share your views on the benefits you value and use most often, as well as potential areas for future change, if required. The survey will be sent to plan members, and will also be posted on the ETFO ELHT website at: www.etfo-elhtbenefits.ca

Sincerely,
 
Board of Trustees for the ETFO Employee Life and Health Trust
