As a result of the 2016 contract negotiations significant improvements were made to the medical options offered to all eligible local 1-S members.
The 2 HIP medical options will be available for the life of the contract! We strongly advise that our members consider joining one of these high quality, no deductible HIP medical plans.
For members living in New Jersey where HIP isn’t available the higher quality Cigna Premier plan has been reinstated. The low benefit My Choice 2 plan will no longer be offered to 1-S members.
Finally, we’ve negotiated a better cost share for our membership. Those of you already enrolled in HIP will notice a significant savings.
Beginning August 30, 2016 all eligible Local 1-S members will have the one-time option to enroll in or make a change to your current medical option. You will be able to enroll August 30 thru September 12 on IN-SITE. Coverage changes will go into effect on October 1, 2016.
Members, medical insurance is a necessity as well as a requirement of the Affordable Care Act.
Take advantage of the medical option that best fits the needs of you and your family.
