Millwrights H&W COVID Announcement June 3, 2020

COVID-19 AND YOUR COVERAGE: An Important
Announcement for Millwrights’ H&W Plan Members

Your Health & Welfare Trustees recognize the challenges Plan Members and their families are facing during this uncertain time. The Trustees are taking the following temporary actions to assist you:


• The Plan is waiving self-payments and freezing hour banks, so that everyone covered for the month of May will also have coverage for the months of June and July.
• Your prescription drug coverage is temporarily increasing from 80% to 90% for all drugs purchased starting June 1.
• Your dependant children turning 22, as well as dependant children over 22 and already covered by the Plan because they were in school prior to COVID-19, will remain covered until August 31.
• Apprentices who were unable to complete their training courses due to
COVID-19 will receive their school credits for Plan coverage.

The Trustees will continue to monitor the situation and provide you with further updates as things evolve.

Please contact PBAS, the Plan Administrator, for more information.
