NYCDCC Welfare Fund to Reduce Annual Deductibles by Fifty Percent

NYCDCC Welfare Fund to Reduce Annual Deductibles by Fifty Percent

October 14, 2016

The Breduced-deductible-photooard of Trustees of the NYCDCC Welfare Fund (the “Fund”) is pleased to announce that effective January 1, 2017, annual deductibles for all In-Network services provided by Empire BlueCross BlueShield will be reduced by fifty percent (50%) for active and retired participants and their eligible dependents. This reduction will apply to In-Network services for both individual and family deductibles.

As a result of this reduction in the deductible, the annual out-of-pocket expenses that you incur for In-Network covered services before the Plan begins paying benefits will soon be significantly less.

The Summary of Material Modification (“SMM”) describing this benefit improvement can be read by clicking HERE. If you have any questions regarding the reduction in your annual In-Network deductibles, please call our Member Services Department at (800) 529-FUND (3863).
