Laurentian University Retirees Health Benefit Plan
As part of the briefing by Human Resources for their retirement package, faculty receive a selection of providers for health care and other benefits, including medical prescriptions, dental care, eyeglasses, hearing aids, travel insurance, and various paramedical services, to ensure retirees enjoy a prosperous, and healthy, life style after their career at Laurentian. Depending on the plan selected, a monthly premium is paid to the selected provider, which will cover a percentage of medical and other health costs incurred.
