October 17, 2020
MEC Benefits Committee
A number of questions have been asked as it pertains to the Wellness Credit ($48) for Medical Benefits that is applied for those who non-smokers are. AFA has been advised of the following clarification:
Flight Attendants on Involuntary Furlough have a special provision by which they are entitled to the Wellness Credit for the first three months of COBRA coverage.
Flight Attendants on Voluntary Furlough are entitled to the Wellness Credit for the duration of the Voluntary Furlough.
In addition, it has been acknowledged that some people may not immediately see the credit. However, if the credit is not visible now, records will be updated on Saturday of this week, retroactively.
