Continuation of Healthcare Coverage Options Just Got Better!

If you lose coverage under the Active Plan of Benefits due to a reduction in hours contributed on your behalf to the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters Welfare Fund you now have three options to choose from to continue health coverage under the Active Plan for you and your family:

  • Self-payment option – NEW!
  • Continuation of Coverage under COBRA, or
  • The Low Cost Plan of Benefits

Note: In order to qualify for the self-payment option, you must be a member in good standing with your local union so make sure you pay your dues in a timely manner. For more information on health plan continuation coverage options please read our Summary of Material Modification regarding the Self-Pay of Hours Option and our Continuation of Coverage Brochure.
