    1199SEIU members have some of the best health coverage in the nation.

    Your Unparalleled Health Coverage

    While most U.S. workers have health coverage through their employers, almost all of them have co-pays, premiums and other out-of-pocket costs that can add up to thousands of dollars each year.

    Most 1199SEIU members enjoy unparalleled health coverage with little to no out-of-pocket costs, 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 and other benefits are covered through one of the six benefit funds listed below. Each Fund has its own eligibility requirements and level of benefits.

    National Benefit Fund

    Greater New York Benefit Fund

    Home Care Benefit Fund

    National Benefit Fund for Rochester Members

    Greater New York Benefit Fund for New Jersey Members

    Licensed Practical Nurses Welfare Fund
