Working America, the community affiliate of the AFL-CIO, has a Health Care program available to UFCW members who don’t have collectively bargained health insurance. The program provides a simple way for members to learn about health care options, the costs, and how to sign up for insurance. With the health care open enrollment ending date two weeks away, it is important for members to check out the Working America Health Care program and get themselves and their families covered before February 15. If members don’t have health coverage during 2015, they may have to pay a penalty.
The Working America Health Care program offers members an easy way to help them find the best plan that fits their needs. With the program members can:
-Have someone help walk them through tax credits and subsidies to pay for health insurance; and
-Talk to licensed health care professionals who can help them pick the most affordable insurance option.
If members sign up for an insurance plan that is supported by the Working America Health Care program, members will also receive access to a personalized Health Advocate service. The Health Advocate service can help coordinate care and answer any coverage claims or clinical questions.
Visit the Working America Health Care program website to enroll in health insurance and then access a Health Advocate.
