Health Care


Q.

Who is eligible to become a Participant in the Plan?

A.

You are eligible to participate in the Plan if you work for an Employer that is required to make contributions to the Health and Welfare Plan for the work you perform. For most Participants, this means working in a position covered by a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the Employer and the Union.

Q.

What if I don’t work enough hours to gain eligibility for the month?

A.

If you fail to have the required employer contributions to continue Health Care coverage, you may be eligible to make a self-payment directly to the Plan, or you may be eligible to continue with COBRA Continuation Coverage. Please contact the Trust Fund Office at (626) 646-1083 or Toll Free at (800) 433-6692.

Q.

How do I maintain my monthly Health Care coverage?

A.

You must have employer contributions of a specified amount determined by your Collective Bargaining Agreement or submit a self-payment (if applicable) or elect COBRA Continuation Coverage to continue Health Care Coverage.
