Your Health Benefits
When you read the statistics, it makes you realize how fortunate 1199SEIU members are to have some of the best health coverage in the nation.
While a majority of workers in the U.S. have health coverage through their employers, almost all of them have co-pays, co-insurance, deductibles and premiums that can add up to thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket costs each year.
But your coverage is different. Most 1199SEIU members enjoy unparalleled health coverage with little or no money out of pocket, while other members pay modest co-pays and premiums for high-quality care.
Select Your Health Fund
1199SEIU members and retirees who are eligible for health benefits are covered through one of five benefit funds listed below. Each Fund has its own eligibility requirements and level of benefits.
1199SEIU National Benefit Fund
1199SEIU Home Care Benefit Fund
Effective January 1, 2019, you will no longer have co-payments for primary care physician and specialist visits or high-end radiology services.
