We have great news for our members who work at ShopRite, Acme Markets, or are retirees in the UFCW Local 152 Health & Welfare Benefit Plans CSA, BR70, X70, and Y70.
UFCW Local 152 Leadership has been working behind the scenes to improve your health benefits!
We are happy to inform you that the percentage payable – or the percentage your health benefits would pay at a time of medical service – has increased to 80%! This benefit enhancement now decreases your out-of-pocket expenses!
Any services (including but not limited to hospitalization, surgery, transplant, hospice) previously covered at 70% have been increased to 80% at no additional cost to members.
UFCW Local 152 works tirelessly to improve the lives of our members, even between contracts. The Local’s goal is to ultimately see this benefit increased to 90% coverage in 2023. Stay tuned, as we plan to announce several more improvements for all the plans within the next few weeks.
All members in these Plans should have received a letter explaining the changes. Please keep in mind that you must still select an in-network provider. If you have any questions, please call the Fund office at 856-793-1598.
