Active Members enrolled in the Health Net PPO Plans
Active Members currently enrolled in the Health Net PPO California Plan and Outside of California PPO Plan will be receiving an announcement letter soon. Because of the continuing rise of the premium cost for these plans a self payment will be required for a portion of the premium amount beginning in February 2014.
The announcement letter will be explaining alternatives to remaining enrolled in the PPO Plans. As you may know a penalty may be assessed by the IRS to people who are not enrolled for any medical plan coverage in 2014.
Among the alternatives will be the option to enroll in the HMO plan in the port area where you ship and use the Union Hall as your address. This alternative may not work for all Members so you are encouraged to read the announcement letter and decide on the best course of action for yourself. If you have any questions, please call the Welfare Plan office
The monthly self-payments amounts for those enrolled in the California PPO Plan will be $253.00 for single enrollments, $544.00 for two party enrollments, and $747.00 for family enrollments.
The monthly self-payment amounts for those enrolled in the outside of California Health Net PPO Plan will be $228.00 for single enrollments, $490.00 for two party enrollments, and $672.00 for family enrollments.
If you are enrolled in a Health Net PPO Plan and do not receive the announcement letter by November 15,2013, please contact the SUP Welfare Plan office. Members currently enrolled in HMO Plans will not be receiving announcement letters and no self-payment will be required to remain in your current Plan.
