HEALTH PLAN ELIGIBILITY RULES – YOU MAY QUALIFY FOR COVERAGE SOONER
Due to terms negotiated in the recently ratified Production Contract, revised eligibility rules that are now in effect. Eleven work weeks will provide six months of health coverage and nineteen weeks will provide twelve months of coverage. As in the past, work on any contract which provides a health contribution will count as an eligible work week.
These updated rules apply to coverage commencing on or after December 1, 2015, based on accumulation periods ending in or after September 2015. (NOTE: These new eligibility rules are only guaranteed for the term of the Production Contract, which will expire on September 29, 2019.) As always, the Equity-League Health Fund staff is available to assist you if you have questions about your eligibility.
