The Union and company Trustees on the Health and Welfare fund have agreed to benefit improvements without going to arbitration. Effective March 1, 2021 the copay will be reduced to $10, including for retirees.
Dental implants have been approved through in-network Blue Cross dentists at the rate of two per year at no cost to members. This includes bone grafts if necessary, and anesthesia. Retirees are eligible for the in-network discount at in-network Blue Cross dentists.
As soon as COVID vaccines are made available, Local 804 members and their immediate families will have zero copay.
Local 804 will constantly look to improve benefits for our active and retired members. We look forward to more improvements and the continued growth of the Health and Welfare fund.
One Union-One Goal.
