PACIFIC FIRST & STANDARD LIFE CLAIM SUBMISSION DEADLINES
Dear Brothers and Sisters:
Pacific First has advised that there will be no run off period for claims to be adjudicated by Pacific First and that all claims must be submitted to prior to January 31, 2013 in order to be reimbursed.
Normally in a benefit transition, a run off period of ninety (90) days for claim submission is extended. The termination notice from Standard Life did confirm that claims for expenses incurred before the termination were to be submitted within ninety (90) days of that date.
Regrettably, Pacific First is the first payer on claims and has chosen not to extend a run off period. Therefore, we ask that members ensure their claims are submitted prior to January 31, 2013. Please ensure you maintain a copy of all claims submissions.
We are continuing to work with Green Shield Canada to ensure a smooth transition.
Tania Canniff, General Chairperson
Transportation District 140, IAM & AW
