The amounts allocated shall be established before the start of each calendar year and, subject to the following provision, shall be used in the calendar year for which they have been allocated.
Amounts not used during the previous calendar year shall be carried over to the current calendar year. At the end of the current year, transferred amounts that are still unused shall be reallocated to the payment of the health insurance plan premiums provided for in clause 19.01.
