SEIU is committed to providing benefits that offer you and your family security, choice and flexibility. As part of this commitment, we offer programs and resources to support the health and well being of you and your family – support that includes a comprehensive medical plan, 100% coverage for in network preventive care, the Mental Health/Substance Abuse Program (through MH Consultants), the Healthy Lifestyles Program through IBC and a health management nurse on staff to assist those with chronic medical conditions.
Your benefit plan and the required contributions are established by a collective bargaining agreement. Your employer makes monthly contributions on your behalf to the Fund, which pays for all or part of your health and welfare benefits. You pay a portion of the cost of the healthcare services you receive through deductibles, copayments, and/or coinsurance.
Your health is critically important: it determines your quality of life, impacts your wallet and affects the Fund’s ability to offer its benefit programs. You can have a positive impact on the high cost of healthcare by taking steps to maintain or improve your health. It may not be easy, but it’s important. Take advantage of your preventive care benefits, exercise regularly (with your doctor’s permission) and eat a healthy diet.
