Open Enrollment for January Available Now

OPEIU/Guild 45 Health Plan Premiums Due Sept. 1


All currently enrolled Guild 45 members were recently sent information about the new health insurance premiums due September 1 for continued coverage (or modification/new enrollment) of their OPEIU/Guild 45 Health Insurance Plan. Premiums are adjusted annually on September 1; as September 1 was the initial date upon which our members had access to the OPEIU /USW Fund plan.

Open enrollment is available now for January 1, 2021, benefit elections. You may enroll or modify your current enrollment for a plan change effective January 1. Although the premium for non-Medicare coverage is adjusted annually in September, all benefit periods are on a calendar year. Premium adjustments for Medicare eligible members will be provided for January 1.

All Pennsylvania, Illinois, Iowa, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Florida, and Vermont Podiatric Medical Association members have been able since last fall to secure health insurance plans through the agreement that OPEIU entered into with the United Steelworkers Health and Welfare Plan. The benefits are provided through an insured arrangement by Highmark Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and the insurance is available for members and their family.
