9 Intrductin The Teamsters Unin 25 Health Services & Insurance Plan, mre cmmnly called TeamstersCare, ffers yu and yur family the security f quality health care and a measure f financial prtectin thrugh disability, life, and accident insurance plans. If yu re an eligible TeamstersCare member, yu, yur spuse and yur dependent children have the fllwing health benefits: medical care and hspitalizatin behaviral health benefits pharmacy and prescriptin drugs dental care visin care hearing care emplyee assistance prgram (EAP) As a member, yu als have the additinal financial prtectin prvided by these TeamstersCare benefits: weekly disability benefits!replacement incme if yu can t wrk because yu re sick r injured!fr the member life insurance!fr the member and dependents accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance!extra life and accident prtectin!fr the member Certain bargaining agreements may prvide different benefits. If yu are cvered under ne f these agreements, yu ll receive additinal infrmatin specific t yur benefits. As a reference, this bklet cntains quite a bit f detail abut yur benefits. Yu shuld share the infrmatin in this bklet with yur family. If yu have questins regarding specific benefits that yu can t find described in this benefit bklet, dn t hesitate t call Charlestwn Member Services. See page 75 fr these and ther imprtant phne numbers. The Patient Prtectin and Affrdable Care Act In March 2010, Cngress passed and the President signed int law the Affrdable Care Act. As a result f the Act, TeamstersCare is required t prvide yu with certain health care cverages and infrmatin. Grandfathered Plan under the Affrdable Care Act TeamstersCare believes that ur plan is a grandfathered health plan under the Patient Prtectin and Affrdable Care Act. A grandfathered health plan can preserve certain basic health cverage that was already in effect when the law was enacted. Being a grandfathered plan means that TeamstersCare may nt include certain cnsumer prtectins f the Act that apply t ther plans. Fr example, we are nt required t fllw the prvisin f preventive health services withut any cst sharing. Hwever, grandfathered health plans must cmply with certain ther cnsumer prtectins in the Act, such as the eliminatin f lifetime dllar limits fr benefits. Page 7

10 Questins regarding which prtectins apply and which prtectins d nt apply t a grandfathered health plan and what might cause the plan t change status can be directed t the TeamstersCare Executive Directr, at ext Yu may als cntact the Emplyee Benefits Security Administratin, US Department f Labr at r This website has a table summarizing which prtectins d and d nt apply t grandfathered health plans. Participatin in the Early Retiree Reinsurance Prgram Yu are a plan participant, r are being ffered the pprtunity t enrll as a plan participant, in an emplyment based health plan (TeamstersCare) that is certified fr participatin in the Early Retiree Reinsurance Prgram (ERRP). The Early Retiree Reinsurance Prgram is a Federal prgram that was established under the Affrdable Care Act. Under the Prgram, the Federal gvernment reimburses a plan spnsr f an emplyment based health plan fr sme f the csts f health care benefits paid n behalf f, r by, early retirees and certain family members f early retirees participating in the plan. By law, the prgram expires n January 1, Under the Early Retiree Reinsurance Prgram, TeamstersCare may chse t use any reimbursements it receives frm this prgram t reduce r ffset increases in early retiree plan participants premium cntributins, c payments, deductibles r ther ut f pcket csts. If TeamstersCare chses t use the ERRP reimbursements this way, yu, as a plan participant, may experience changes that may be advantageus t yu, in yur health plan cverage terms and cnditins, fr s lng as the reimbursements under this prgram are available and TeamstersCare chses t use the reimbursements fr this purpse. TeamstersCare may als use the ERRP reimbursements t reduce r ffset increases in its wn csts fr maintaining yur health benefits cverage, which may increase the likelihd that it will cntinue t ffer health benefits cverage t its retirees and emplyees and their families.

11 United Parcel Service (UPS) Part time Benefit Members If yu are an eligible United Parcel Service (UPS) part time emplyee, yur Teamsters Unin 25 Health Services & Insurance Plan cverage differs frm the cverage fr ther members in tw basic ways: the benefits yu receive and yur eligibility rules. UPS Part time Benefits If yu wrk 225 hurs r mre fr UPS in a three mnth eligibility determinatin perid, but fewer than 400 hurs, yu are eligible fr the fllwing TeamstersCare benefits: medical behaviral health pharmacy and prescriptin drugs dental care visin care hearing care emplyee assistance prgram (EAP) Hwever, yu are nt eligible fr: weekly disability life insurance dependent life insurance AD&D insurance UPS Part time Eligibility As a UPS part time emplyee, the same eligibility rules apply t yu as t full time emplyees, except that yu have t wrk 225 hurs, rather than 400 hurs, in a three mnth eligibility determinatin perid. If yu re a UPS part time emplyee, and yu wrk 400 r mre hurs in a fixed three mnth eligibility determinatin perid, then yu receive the same benefits as a full time emplyee during the crrespnding three mnth benefit cverage perid. Fr mre infrmatin n eligibility rules, see the descriptin immediately fllwing in the Eligibility sectin, keeping in mind that yur eligibility is based n 225 hurs rather than 400 hurs. Page 9

12 Eligibility Member Eligibility Yu becme eligible fr TeamstersCare benefits in ne f tw ways: " yu begin wrking fr an emplyer wh is already participating with Teamsters Lcal 25 (r sme ther participating Lcal r rganizatin) and wh is cntributing t Teamsters Unin 25 Health Services & Insurance Plan (TeamstersCare) in this case, yu becme an active participant as sn as yu fulfill the eligibility requirements r " yu are already wrking fr an emplyer wh begins participating with Teamsters Lcal 25 (r sme ther participating Lcal r rganizatin) and begins cntributing t TeamstersCare in this case, yu becme an active participant when yur emplyer cntributes t TeamstersCare an amunt equal t the remittance rate times the required number f hurs and yu fulfill the eligibility requirements. Hw Yu First Becme Eligible T becme eligible fr benefits nce yu re cvered by a cntract requiring cntributins n yur behalf, yu have t wrk and yur emplyer must have remitted cntributins fr a ttal f 400 r mre hurs ver a perid f any three cnsecutive mnths. When yu reach 400 hurs during that three mnth perid, yu becme eligible t enrll in the Plan. After yu enrll, cverage fr yu and yur eligible dependents begins n the first day f the next mnth fllwing the accumulatin f the 400 hurs. Initial Eligibility Example: If yu wrk and yur emplyer cntributes n yur behalf 110 hurs fr March, 200 hurs fr April and 160 hurs fr May, yu are eligible t enrll fr benefits beginning June 1. Imprtant Nte : In this Answerbk, anytime the wrd wrk is used as it relates t eligibility, it means credited with required cntributins accrding t the Cllective Bargaining Agreement r by law. In this cntext, required cntributins means cntributins wed t the Fund fr thse hurs# r part f hurs#fr which wages are paid r due figured t the nearest quarter hur, as well as hurs fr paid vacatin, paid hliday, and ther hurs fr which pay is due r received by the member. Hw Yu Cntinue t Remain Eligible After yu ve becme eligible fr the first time (regardless f what mnth yur eligibility starts), yu remain eligible thrugh the next January 31, r April 30, r July 31, r Octber 31 whichever date cmes first. These dates are called eligibility review dates and they are used t determine yur cntinuing eligibility. Imprtant Nte : Under a special Plan prvisin, the first time yu becme eligible, yu re entitled t n less than three mnths cverage. Thus, if the perid between the day yu first becme eligible t enrll and the fllwing eligibility review date is less than three mnths, yur eligibility autmatically extends t the next fllwing eligibility review date. Page 10

13 On each eligibility review date, we lk at the number f hurs yu ve wrked during a fixed three mnth perid. S lng as yu wrked 400 r mre hurs during that fixed three mnth eligibility determinatin perid, yu cntinue t be eligible, frm the review date n, fr the next three mnths ging frward. If yu d nt have 400 r mre hurs, yu may cntinue eligibility if yur emplyer has made cntributins f 1800 r mre hurs in the previus 12 mnths, and yu have wrked at least ne hur in the current eligibility determinatin perid, and we have prf that yu cntinue t wrk fr a cntributing TeamstersCare emplyer. Here s hw the eligibility cycle wrks: Yur eligibility is reviewed n: If yu wrked at least 400 hurs during the preceding: Or, if yu wrked 1800 hurs during the preceding 12 mnths*: Yu cntinue t be eligible fr the next: January 31 Oct., Nv. & Dec. Jan. 1 thru Dec. 31 February, March, & April April 30 Jan., Feb. & March April 1 thru March 31 May, June, & July July 31 April, May & June July 1 thru June 30 August, Sept., & Oct. Octber 31 July, Aug. & Sept. Oct. 1 thru Sept. 30 Nvember, Dec., & Jan. *Yu must prvide prf f cntinued emplyment in either the mnth befre the eligibility cverage perid r the first mnth f the new eligibility cverage perid t be eligible fr the 1800 hur lk back rule. Imprtant Nte: If yu re a UPS part timer and yu wrk at least 225 hurs (but less than 400) in a fixed three mnth perid, yu re eligible fr all TeamstersCare benefits except weekly disability, life, dependent life, and AD&D. If yu wrk 400 r mre hurs, yu re eligible fr all benefits in the crrespnding three mnth cverage perid, just as thugh yu were a full time emplyee. Buying up Hurs If Yu Fall Shrt f 400 Hurs in a Fixed Three Mnth Perid, r Yu D Nt Have 1800 hurs in the 12 mnth Lk Back perid, we check t see if yu wrked mre than the required 400 hurs in each f three cnsecutive calendar quarters, but then fell shrt f 400 hurs in the mst recent quarter. If this happens, yu re eligible t cntinue cverage by buying up the number f hurs yu need t remain eligible. T be eligible fr the buy up, the fllwing cnditins must apply: " yu must have wrked at least 400 hurs in each f the three cnsecutive quarters immediately preceding the quarter in which yu have the shrtfall; " yu must wrk at least ne hur in the quarter yu re buying up; " yu must prvide prf f cntinued emplyment in either the mnth befre the eligibility cverage perid r the first mnth f the new eligibility cverage perid; " the buy up rate is yur emplyer s cntracted hurly remittance rate that is in place during the quarter yu have the shrtfall; " the amunt yu pay is yur buy up rate times the number f hurs yu fall shrt f the required 400 hurs; " there s a $1,000 maximum n the amunt yu re required t pay in rder t buy up in any given quarter nce yu reach this $1,000 cap, yu d nt have t pay any additinal amunt fr that quarter; and " yu pay fr yur hurs directly t TeamstersCare by check r mney rder. Page 11

14 Once yu buy up fr a particular quarter, yu cannt cunt that same quarter as the first in a new series f cnsecutive three mnth perids. In ther wrds, nce yu buy up fr ne quarter, yu must then wrk and have remittances paid n yur behalf by yur emplyer fr three cnsecutive quarters befre yu again have the pprtunity t buy up. If yu are nt eligible under the 400 hur rule, the 1800 hur lk back r the buy up ptin, yu may have the ptin t cntinue cverage under COBRA. Hw t Reinstate Lst Eligibility If fr sme reasn yu d nt meet the eligibility requirements and yu are nt eligible t buy up (r yu decline), then yu lse TeamstersCare cverage. In rder t reinstate yur eligibility, yu must wrk at least 400 hurs in a rlling three mnth reinstatement perid that ccurs either befre r within 12 mnths after yu ve lst cverage. Once yu re ineligible fr mre than 12 mnths, yu have t reinstate just as thugh yu were a new member. (See Hw Yu First Becme Eligible n page 10.) When reinstating, yu can wrk yur 400 hurs befre r after the date n which yur eligibility ends. The number f mnths yu lse cverage, and the number f mnths f eligibility yu earn when yu reinstate, bth depend n the relatinship between the date yu lse eligibility and the three mnth rlling reinstatement perid when yu wrk yur 400 hurs. Once yu becme ineligible, yu must always lse at least ne mnth f cverage befre yu can regain eligibility. Reinstatement Example. If yu lse yur eligibility n April 30th, regardless f hw r when yu reinstate, yu must lse cverage fr at least the mnth f May. The earliest three mnth perid yu can use t reinstate is February/March/April. S, n April 30th, yu lk back at thse three mnths; if yu reached 400 hurs during that perid, yu lse cverage fr May, but reinstate as f June 1st. Hwever, if yu dn t make yur 400 hurs in February/March/April, yu then rll frward t the next three mnth perid, March/April/May. On May 31st, yu lk back n that perid t see if yu ve wrked 400 r mre hurs. If yes, yur eligibility reinstates n June 1st; if n, then yu rll frward t the next three mnth perid, April/May/June...and s n, frm ne three mnth perid t the next, until yu wrk 400 r mre hurs in any three cnsecutive mnth perid. Supplemental Reinstatement/Eligibility Rules Cnstructin Industry Rules When a TeamstersCare member wrks fr a cnstructin industry emplyer with a Cllective Bargaining Agreement requiring that the emplyer cntribute fr all hurs wrked, up t 2080 hurs in a calendar year, and the member reaches 2080 hurs f cntributins in that calendar year, eligibility cntinues fr the February, March and April eligibility perid f the fllwing year. Mvie Industry Rules Due t the cntractual hurs remitted in the mvie industry (up t 65 hurs/week) members in the Mvie Referral System (senirity r casual list), wh have received at least 65 hurs f mvie cntributins in the Page 12

15 past twelve mnths, are granted eligibility fr the buy up rule and fr the 1800 hur extended cverage rule and d nt need t shw prf f cntinued emplyment. Oil Industry Rules Members wrking fr the il industry wh lse eligibility n Octber 31 st can reinstate cverage December 1 st if they wrk 100 r mre hurs in Octber. The member must lse ne mnth f cverage (Nvember); all cntributin hurs must be frm a TeamstersCare il industry emplyer; and the member must cntinue t wrk each mnth f the next quarter. This rule des nt supersede the 1800 hur r buy up prvisin rules. When Yur Dependents Are Eligible Dependent Eligibility Once yur wn eligibility begins, yur dependents als becme eligible fr TeamstersCare medical, prescriptin drug, dental, visin, hearing, and behaviral health benefits. Imprtant Nte: Fr purpses f TeamstersCare eligibility, nce yur dependent is enrlled, and s lng as yur dependent meets the Plan s definitin f eligible dependent, yu cannt terminate cverage fr that dependent. Eligible dependents include: " yur current spuse, r an ex spuse wh was cvered by the Plan when yu divrced, r an exspuse wh was an eligible and enrlled dependent when a new emplyer begins cntributing t the Plan, in cases where: # yu have a divrce decree requiring yu t cver yur ex spuse, and # yu decline cverage fr yur current spuse (in rder t maintain cverage fr yur ex spuse) and yur current spuse agrees in writing t waive all current and future cverage frm Teamsters Unin 25 Health Services & Insurance Plan and prvides prf f ther cverage. (Nte: new members wrking fr a regular cntributing emplyer cannt cver an ex spuse if the member was divrced r legally separated befre jining the Plan) " yur children, up t age 26 prvided they are nt eligible fr an emplyer prvided health plan " yur unmarried children wh are incapable f self care because f a physical r mental disability, prvided they: # depend n yu fr supprt, and # first became disabled befre turning 26 and were cvered by the Plan at that time.

Defining Disabled Children Under certain circumstances, TeamstersCare may cntinue t prvide medical benefits fr a disabled child beynd the date dependent eligibility wuld nrmally have ended. Fr cverage t be extended, the child must be first disabled befre they turn age 26 and, at that time, they must be: # cvered by the Plan # currently unmarried, and # mentally r physically disabled s as nt t be able t earn his r her wn living n the date eligibility wuld nrmally end. In rder fr yur dependent t be eligible fr cntinued medical cverage, yu must prvide TeamstersCare with prf f the disability within 30 days after the disabled child turns 26. Peridically, as required by the Medical Review Cmmittee yu will need t prvide medical dcumentatin r ther infrmatin fr review. The Cmmittee will evaluate this infrmatin and determine whether the dependent is still eligible fr cntinuing TeamstersCare cverage. Failure t prvide medical dcumentatin when requested may cause yur dependent t lse eligibility. Fr further details, cntact Charlestwn Member Services at ext. 2. Imprtant Nte: If yu have a disabled dependent when yu as a member first becme eligible fr TeamstersCare cverage, the Plan may prvide medical benefits fr that dependent s lng as yu submit prf f disability, t the TeamstersCare Medical Review Cmmittee, within 30 days f the date yu becme eligible. Cntinuing TeamstersCare Cverage Cntinuing TeamstersCare Cverage under COBRA In certain cases where yu r yur dependents wuld therwise lse healthcare benefits, yu may be able t cntinue medical cverage under the Federal law knwn as COBRA (see page 46 fr details n COBRA cverage). Dependent Cverage when Eligibility Ends Yur dependents lse cverage at the same time yur wn eligibility ends. Individual dependents can als lse cverage if they n lnger meet the definitin f an eligible dependent; hwever they may be able t cntinue medical cverage thrugh COBRA (see page 48 fr details n COBRA cverage fr dependents). Family Cverage in Case f Yur Death If yu die while cvered by the TeamstersCare Prgram, TeamstersCare will cntinue t prvide yur family with medical, behaviral health, prescriptin drug, dental, visin, hearing, and the Emplyee Assistance Prgram. These extended benefits can apply fr up t three mnths beynd the benefit cverage perid when yur dependents wuld therwise lse eligibility.

Cntinuing Cverage if Yu re Disabled If yu re disabled and are receiving either TeamstersCare Weekly Disability benefits (fr a nn wrkrelated disability) r Wrkers Cmpensatin (fr a wrk related disability), yu may be able t cntinue receiving TeamstersCare medical benefits during the perid f yur disability. In either case, yu must meet all f the Plan s eligibility rules. If yur disability is caused by a jb related sickness r injury and yu re receiving Wrkers Cmpensatin benefits, yur emplyer may be required t cntribute t TeamstersCare at a rate f 32 hurs a week fr up t 12 mnths, if specified in yur Cllective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). Cntinuing Cverage fr Yur Spuse after Legal Separatin r Divrce In the event f divrce r legal separatin, a curt might rder yu t prvide medical cverage fr yur frmer spuse and eligible dependents. In certain cases, TeamstersCare may extend the same cverage t which yur ex spuse had been previusly entitled, except fr life insurance. T be eligible, yur exspuse must have been cvered by the Plan at the time f yur divrce. Yu will need t prvide Charlestwn Member Services with the effective date f the divrce and dcumentatin f the curt rder within 30 days f yur divrce becming final. If cverage is extended, but yur ex spuse subsequently remarries, then the extended cverage ends n the date f remarriage. Yu, as the member, are respnsible fr ntifying TeamstersCare within 31 days f this change in family status. If yu remarry, yu may elect t cntinue cverage fr yur ex spuse instead f yur new spuse prvided yur new spuse agrees in writing t waive all current and future cverage frm Teamsters Unin 25 Health Services & Insurance Plan and prvides prf f ther health cverage. Under the Plan, yu cannt cver a spuse and an ex spuse at the same time. If, upn divrce, yu are nt required t prvide cverage fr yur ex spuse, he/she may be eligible t purchase temprary extended healthcare cverage under COBRA fr up t 36 mnths (see page 48 fr details f COBRA cverage fr dependents). Yu, as the member, are respnsible fr ntifying an ex spuse f all benefit infrmatin including benefit changes, reinstatements, prviding ID cards, etc. The Plan is respnsible fr ntifying an ex spuse f COBRA cverage upn terminatin f health care benefits. Imprtant Nte: Divrce r legal separatin is a change in family status, which in rder t ensure cverage fr yur eligible dependents yu must reprt t TeamstersCare within 31 days f the change. If yu fail t d s, TeamstersCare cannt ensure cntinuus r timely cverage fr any claims yu may incur beynd that 31 day perid. Cverage n Returning frm Military Duty If yu return t yur jb within 90 days f authrized military duty, yur TeamstersCare cverage is reinstated immediately, prvided: yu were eligible fr benefits at the time yu went n duty yu wrk at least ne hur fr a cntributing emplyer after returning t wrk yur emplyer prvides TeamstersCare with dcumentatin that yu have returned t wrk, and yu prvide prf f military service listing yur discharge date Page 15

While yu are in the military, yu and yur dependents have the right t elect cntinued benefit cverage under COBRA fr up t 24 mnths (see page 46 fr details n COBRA cverage). Cverage thrugh Medicaid and the Children s Health Insurance Prgram (CHIP) If yu are unable t affrd the premiums, sme States have premium assistance prgrams that can help pay fr cverage. These States use funds frm their Medicaid r CHIP prgrams t help peple wh are eligible fr emplyer spnsred health cverage, but need assistance in paying their health premiums.
