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.

How do I add my newborn child to my plan?
You must provide the Fund Office with a copy of the child’s birth certificate within 90 days of birth to enroll your child with the applicable date (child’s birthdate). If you fail to do so, within the applicable 90-day period, dependent coverage will not be available under the Plan for your new dependent child 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 child 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.
