2014 - HOW TO QUALIFY FOR THE PREMIER PLAN OF BENEFITS

   Effective January 1, 2013, Chairman Ameris and the Trustees wanted to simplify the process and avoid future confusion pertaining to qualification for the Premier Plan of benefits. The Fund will require you and your spouse(if applicable) to complete a Health Risk Assessment("HRA") and have a routine physical exam with the appropriate diagnostic health screenings EVERY calendar year.

  If you are eligible, or become eligible, for Welfare Fund benefits in the period from January 1st through August 31st, you and your spouse(if applicable) must each complete the HRA(s) and have annual routine physical exams(s) with the diagnostic health screenings by September 30th of that year in order to qualify for the Premier Plan for the following year. Should you and your spouse(if applicable) not complete the wellness requirements you will be enrolled in the Basic Plan effective on January 1st of the following year.

  If you become eligible for Welfare Fund benefits between September 1st and December 31st of any year, you will be enrolled in the Premier Plan and you and your spouse(if applicable) must complete the HRA(s) and have annual routine physical exam(s) with the appropriate diagnostic health screenings by September 30th of the following year to satisfy the wellness requirements. Should you and your spouse(if applicable) not complete the wellness requirements you will be enrolled in the Basic Plan effective January 1st of the following year.

  Once you are moved into the Basic Plan, you can re-enroll in the Premier Plan by completing the wellness requirements. Once the wellness requirements have been met, you and your eligible dependents will be moved into the Premier Plan the first day of the following month.

  Please note: If you are making COBRA payments for medical coverage when you are scheduled to be moved into the Basic Plan you will remain in the Premier Plan during your period of COBRA coverage only. Once you achieve eligibility through hours worked, you will be moved to the Basic Plan until the wellness requirements are met.
