    New benefit ID cards have been mailed to your home address.  Once you receive your new ID cards, please destroy your old ID cards and start using the new cards.  If you do not receive your new ID cards by January 10, 2019, please contact the Benefit Office at 419-662-1388.


    FrontPath proudly introduced, in partnership with the Joint Replacement Surgeons (‘JIS’) and White Fence Ambulatory Surgery Center (‘White Fence’) in New Albany, Ohio, an opportunity for FrontPath Members to access exclusive pricing arrangements and preferential scheduling for their surgical services.
    In order to access this exclusive savings opportunity, FrontPath Members’ plan participants must contact FrontPath Health Coalition (before seeking care) directly at 419-891-5206, opt. 5 to allow the Preferred Scheduling process to start. The folks at FrontPath and JIS will take it from there.
    Keep in mind, that without simply making this quick & easy call, the additional savings and preferential scheduling opportunities could be lost.

  • How do I add a new child or spouse as a dependent?
    If you acquire a new dependent from marriage, birth, adoption or placement for adoption, the dependent may become enrolled in the Plan as an eligible dependent if the Benefit Office is notified in writing within 30 days from the date of the marriage, birth, adoption or placement for adoption.
    If you do not notify the Benefit Office in writing during the 30-day Special Enrollment Period, coverage for your dependent will begin when you notify the Benefit Office in writing that you have acquired a dependent from marriage, birth, adoption or placement for adoption.  However, the coverage under the Plan will only be effective from the date the Benefit Office receives your written notification, NOT from the date of marriage, birth, adoption, or placement for adoption.    
    When do I become eligible for health benefits?
    You will be initially eligible for benefits beginning the month following the work month in which you completed the 160th hour worked in Covered Employment during two consecutive months.  
    What is a Plan Year?
    A Plan Year is a consecutive 12-month period running from January 1st to December 31st. The Fund uses Plan Years to determine many matters relating to the Plan.
