Health Insurance Reimbursement


On December 1, 2017 I sent a letter to all members on our mailing list about Health Insurance reimbursement.  Just in cased that letter got lost I am reprinting it below.




CDAA/SUAA Members,


It's that time of the year again. A time full of joy and giving. A time for family and friends. A time to reflect on all this world has provided. And a time to turn in your proof of payment for health insurance reimbursement to the College of DuPage!


Depending on what contract or “deal” was in place at the time that you retired, you may be eligible to receive some amount of reimbursement for your out-of-pocket health care insurance costs. If you are unclear if you can receive reimbursement for health insurance, please contact the HR Department at the College of DuPage. CDAA/SUAA has no legal authority to get such information.


It is my understanding that the College of DuPage does not intend to notify you of your eligibility nor the procedures for any possible reimbursement. Luckily, you have CDAA/SUAA to help guide you through this process. I personally contacted the College's HR Department and asked for information on documentation and procedures. I learned that there have been some minor changes this year.


I would like to thank Beryl Mosley, benefits specialist at the College of DuPage Human Resources Department, for providing the following to me so I can send it to you.


Bob Sobie

President, CDAA/SUAA
