Active Member Benefits
The goal of the Plan is to provide you and your family with comprehensive medical benefits. To meet this goal, there are four sources of medical benefits available to you as a Member:
- PPO benefits and hospital benefits through Blue Cross,
- Prescription benefits through OptumRx,
- Dental benefits through Local 94 and Sele-Dent, and/or
- Certain non-PPO benefits, such as Eye Care, Annual Physicals, Hearing Aids, Loss of Time & Death Benefits, are self-administered directly by the Fund.
These four (4) sources combined will provide you, as a Member, and your Eligible Dependents with comprehensive coverage for health expenses you or they may incur.

I recently married. How do I add my spouse to my coverage?
You must provide a copy of your marriage certificate within 90 days of marriage to enroll your new spouse with the applicable date (date of marriage). If you fail to do so, within the applicable 90-day period, dependent coverage will not be available under the Plan for your new spouse until the first of the month following the date in which you provide the Fund Office with the required documentation or any other verifying information requested. A Coordination of Benefits Form (COB) must be completed if your spouse has other coverage. You should also visit the Life Events page on this site to see what you need to do for your other benefits.
