UE 228 President Bill Ladd reached out to Bill Yates, the VSS Contract Program Manager, concerning members being told that their deductibles reset on January 1, 2021. The documentation that was given both to members and the negotiating committee last February stated that our deductibles are on a plan year, not calendar year as FCE has informed some people. Here is the email that was sent, and a copy of the document in question.
Update: Bill Yates responded that he is awaiting an answer on this from the HR and Benefits teams.
Update: The deductible is now lined up with our plan year. If you were improperly billed due to the above issue, reach out to FCE. If FCE is unable to help you, email Amanda Chisling and CC a steward.
