As most 802 members know, the Local 802 health plans do not include hospitalization. However, for the past few years, 802 has offered an HMO plan that does include hospitalization. In order to qualify, you must first be on one of the union’s health plans (A or B), live in New York or New Jersey and pay a monthly premium out of your own pocket.
That premium will increase as of May 1. The new rates are printed below.
For more information on the HMO, see the Health Benefits page and look for the “Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield Direct HMO” heading.
For more information, call 802’s Health Department at (212) 245-4802.
