Effective immediately, anyone who completed a Life Line screening in 2021 will remain at the Fund’s lower deductible, effective January 1, 2023, regardless of whether he or she gets a preventive screening and/or physical in 2022.

In addition, anyone who did not get a Life Line screening in 2021, but who gets a preventive screening and/or physical with his or her primary care physician prior to November 1, 2022 (and can provide proof of the screening and/or physical), will be moved to the lower deductible, effective January 1, 2023.

These new terms will give the Board of Trustees time to get the wellness program fully in place and minimize the disruptions to you and your family. But please note that this is a one-time change.

Starting January 1, 2023, everyone will be required to get a primary care screening between October 1, 2022 and September 30, 2023 to remain at the lower deductible for the following plan year beginning January 1, 2024. In subsequent years, everyone will need to get a primary care screening within the 12-month period ending on each September 30th (e.g., between October 1, 2023 and September 30, 2024).

NOTE:  Actives, non-Medicare retirees, and their dependents only. This does not apply to Medicare retirees.

Health and Welfare Documents

If a dependent is under age 26 and is employed and is OFFERED health insurance through that employer, than that dependent is not eligible for coverage under the Steubenville Electrical Welfare Fund.

PLEASE NOTE: It is VERY IMPORTANT that you notify the Fund of any change in dependents or change in address. Failure to do so will cause delay in payment of your insurance claims.

If any answer to “Is dependent covered by other insurance?” is yes, then please fill out the next form (Other Insurance Form) and submit it.

WARNING: Any person who, with intent to defraud of knowing that he/she is facilitating a fraud against an insurer, submits an application or files a claim containing a false or deceptive statement is guilty of insurance fraud. (Ohio Revised Code Section 3999.21)
