(CAL) Insurance Settlement Payment Date February 29, 2016

Date: February 10, 2016

Insurance Payout

The insurance settlement payment to eligible Flight Attendants will be paid out on February 29th, 2016, in a separate check.

Eligible Flight Attendants are those s-Continental Flight Attendants who chose the Build Your Own 90% coinsurance plans. All of the other plans, including the PPO and HMOs provided are in compliance with the contract.
This settlement is the result of changes that the company made to the “Build Your Own” plans, the remaining “top tier” plan should have been the 95% coverage with an annual out-of-pocket maximum of $1,000 (then reverts to 100% coverage) however, the maximum plan offered was 90% with a $1,500 annual out-of-pocket maximum (then reverts to 100% coverage). This resulted in an annual $500 out-of-pocket increase in the plans. The settlement provides the money to the affected individuals (those who selected to maximum coverage plan) upfront, allowing them to use the money as they see fit, whether for copays, offsets, or annual out-of-pocket costs.
