Highlights

Initial Eligibility and Reinstatement

You and your eligible dependents will be initially eligible for coverage, or reinstated for coverage, on the first day of the second month after you work 300 hours in the previous three-month period and the Fund receives employer contributions for the hours you’ve worked. Coverage will be continued for three consecutive months.

Example 1: New Member
Jeff begins working in October and works 102 hours that month. He also works 152 hours in November and 80 in December, for a total of 334 hours over three months. The contributions for his hours worked are received by the Fund Office.

When Jeff’s coverage begins: February 1
Jeff’s coverage begins after one “skip” month, based on the 300-hour rule. And, because he’s just starting his eligibility, he and his eligible dependents are covered for three full months: February, March and April.

Example 2: Reinstating Coverage
Tim had been out of work and is not eligible for health coverage in October. But, he recently went back to work for 300 hours the preceding July, August and September. The contributions for his hours worked are received by the Fund Office.

When Tim’s coverage begins: November 1
Tim’s coverage begins after one “skip” month, based on the 300-hour rule. And, because he’s reinstating his eligibility, he and his eligible dependents are covered for three full months: November, December and January.

Continued Eligibility

You will continue to be eligible for coverage on the first day of the second month after you work 1,000 hours effective 1/1/2023 in the prior 10 consecutive-month period and the Fund receives employer contributions for the hours you’ve worked. You and your eligible dependents will also continue to be eligible for coverage if you have been credited with at least 300 hours during the preceding three months and the Fund receives employer contributions for the hours you’ve worked.
