TeamCare Health Benefits Update

2021 SPECIAL BULLETIN – 2021 – 1 DATE: FEBRUARY 18, 2021

TO: LOCAL UNIONS AFFECTED BY THE FEDERAL STATE OF EMERGENCY IN TEXAS AND OKLAHOMA

RE: TEAMCARE HEALTH BENEFITS

The Trustees of the Central States Health Fund are concerned about the devastating effect that the current winter weather is having on our TeamCare members. As a result of these severe weather conditions, President Joseph R. Biden declared a federal state of emergency in Texas and Oklahoma.

In response to the President’s state of emergency declaration, the Trustees would like to assist our members in these areas affected by closed work locations and provide the following benefit to help them and their family stay safe and healthy during this crisis:

• Continued Coverage – For active members whose employer has been closed due to the severe weather conditions in these areas, TeamCare will provide continued healthcare coverage without COBRA self-contributions for the week of February 14, 2021 and February 21, 2021. This extension of coverage applies to all eligible family members.

Local Union staff can contact the Field Service Department to have the continued healthcare coverage benefit applied to an affected member:

 Mike Michelini 847-939-2296 mmichelini@centralstates.org 

 CindyMcGinnis 847-939-2184 cmcginnis@centralstates.org

The Trustees’ thoughts and prayers are with our members during this crisis and we will continue to evaluate the situation.

Sincerely,
