SASK WORKERS HEALTH BENEFITS PROGRAM
THIS PROGRAM WAS DISCONTINUED IN THE MARCH 2008 PROVINCIAL BUDGET
On June 27 2007 the provincial government responded to the Report and Recommendations of The Commission on Improving Work Opportunities for Saskatchewan Residents.
The new Saskatchewan Workers’ Health Benefits program was unveiled as part of the response. The program starts July 1, 2007, and will give Saskatchewan’s low-income workers, either employed or self-employed, better access to prescription drugs, eye exams and chiropractic services.
As the average earnings for Artists in Saskatchewan is $15,341, some may qualify for benefits.
