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, 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.
Need to Find a Doctor, Dentist or Vision Specialist?
I gave my Empire BlueCross card to my dentist, and they told me that dental benefits were not covered. Why is my coverage being denied?
The Fund provides medical benefits coverage through Empire BlueCross BlueShield’s PPO medical plan. Your Dental Benefits are administered by Sele-Dent. For more information about your Dental Benefits, please see the Dental Benefits section of this site.
