According to HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), the Fund may not transmit or access PHI
(Protected Health Information) insecurely. Due to Federal Privacy Regulations, we cannot respond to a request via
email if it contains members' PHI. An example of PHI would be, " I will have the required number of weeks by the last
week of July. What Benefit Period will I be able to use my health insurance?" With this example, you should call the
Fund Office directly in order for Equity-League to provide you this information. If you have a general question that
does not involve personal PHI, and pertains to the overall requirements under the health plan, such as "Is there a
deductible that must be satisfied for the prescription drug plan?", we can answer those via email.
If you have a request that involves your personal PHI, please feel free to call, write, or stop in to our office.
