Announcement Regarding Relief for the IATSE National Health and Welfare Fund Plan C Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic
Updated On: Aug 13, 2020
Since their meeting on July 16, the Trustees have been considering reasonable and cost-effective options for ensuring coverage for Plan C participants for the quarter beginning October 1. The Trustees have been monitoring the developments in Washington, DC to determine if federal legislation would assist participants who have lost their employment due to the pandemic with continuing health care coverage. Since no agreement in Washington has been reached, and no federal assistance is available, the Trustees decided to extend relief to participants whose CAPP account balances are not large enough to support the premium payment needed for the October 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020 coverage quarter.
