We have another major benefits announcement for most active members in the ShopRite and Acme Markets “Meat” contracts!
Because of a recent agreement between your Employer and UFCW Local 152, we are pleased to announce that the UFCW Local 152 Health & Welfare Fund will establish a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) for all members with a monthly contribution of $50! These changes will go into effect on September 1st, 2022 for all active members with 18 or more months of service. This applies to members who are both full- and part-time.
This newly negotiated benefit will give members up to $600 per year that can go towards the reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses like copayments, deductibles, X-rays, lab work, prescription drug copayments, and many more services not generally covered by other plans. Some examples of qualified medical expenses can be found here.
UFCW Local 152 works hard to improve the lives of our members, even between contracts. We know this new HRA benefit will make a huge difference for many of our hardworking members!
To take advantage of this great new benefit, members must complete the Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) Claim Form to the Health and Welfare Fund when submitting reimbursable expenses. The Claim Form must be submitted with receipts and/or an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) from your insurance company. All receipts and EOBs must include the provider’s name and address, patient’s name, date of service, type of services, the amount charged, and balance due.
All applicable members will receive a notice from the Health and Welfare Fund which will go into greater detail. For any questions, please get in touch with the Health and Welfare Fund office at 856-793-2501.
