Treatment (Alcoholism, Compulsive Gambling, Etc.)

Workers eligible for salary insurance who undergo daily treatment, in a clinic or as an outpatient, in a specialized clinic recognized for the treatment of alcoholism, drug addiction, compulsive gambling, major depression, or violent behavior may receive payment of weekly benefits during the treatment. 

Limitations and exclusions

The following situations are some of the limitations and exclusions imposed by MÉDIC Construction:
  • Benefits may be received for a maximum of 52 weeks, including those paid for a disability that began before the treatment and those paid by employment insurance;
  • No long-term salary insurance benefits are payable;
  • No salary insurance benefits are paid if the treatment is imposed by a civil or criminal court ruling.

Specific conditions, limitations, and exclusions other than those mentioned above may apply; only the Règlement sur les régimes complémentaires d'avantages sociaux dans l'industrie de la construction has legal value. The clauses that apply are those in force at the time of the event.
