Health (Medavie Blue Cross)
 
The terms of the health plan are outlined in the booklet. Eligible participants must be covered under a provincial government medical insurance program in order to qualify for coverage under this plan.

Employees must be enrolled in the health plan at the time of retirement in order to continue coverage.

THE PRESCRIPTION DRUG PLAN - The Mount Allison University prescription drug plan is a tiered formulary plan that covers thousands of prescription drugs. The drugs available under the plan are grouped into two separate tiers. Drugs in the first tier are recognized as first-line therapy, are used to care for serious medical conditions and are generally more cost effective. The co-payment (the amount paid by the employee for each prescription) is $10.00 for drugs in the first tier. Drugs in the second tier are often more expensive, may be used to treat conditions that are not life-threating, are not always considered first-line therapy for the treatment of a specific disease and/or have lower cost therapeutic alternatives in the first tier. The co-payment is $30.00 for drugs in the second tier.
