New health plan summaries for participants and dependents

In accordance with the Affordable Care Act, the Carpenters Health and Security Trust recently mailed summaries of benefits and coverage to all eligible participants and dependents. These summaries are for the coverage period beginning Jan. 1, 2016 and ending Dec. 31, 2016.

A summary of benefits and coverage (SBC) gives a concise overview of what the health plan covers and what it costs, based on the benefit package in which participants and dependents are enrolled (Employee SBC, Retiree SBC, Medicare SBC). Complete information is available in the plan descriptions on the Carpenters Trusts website. Customer Service Representatives are available to answer questions during normal business hours (800-552-0635).
