Employee Benefits

More information on employee benefits at UNBC can be found through the Human Resources Department website at:  www.unbc.ca/hr

Medical Services Travel Fund

A medical services travel fund is available to members of the UNBC-FA to supplement the existing extended health employee benefits.  See Article 50.11 of the UNBC Faculty Agreement to find out about the medical service travel fund, which expenses are covered, and how to submit a claim for reimbursement.  The fund reimburses costs for members and their dependents who have been referred for out-of-town treatment by a physician or dentist where treatments are not available in Prince George.

The deadline to submit applications is the first Friday in January after New Year’s Day for expenses that have been incurred in the previous calendar year. Expense claim forms and original receipts are to be submitted directly to the Human Resources Department by the deadline.

All claims are reviewed by a panel of one UNBC-FA executive member and one HR administrator to determine eligibility. Reimbursements are considered a taxable benefit by the Canada Revenue Agency, and the University will withhold taxes and report the amounts on a T4A in the applicable year.
