HEALTH PLAN UPDATE
In the December issue of Allegro, we alerted members to major changes in the Local 802 Health Benefits Plan. There is another change. Members who live outside of New York or New Jersey can no longer use the Beech Street PPO. Instead, they can use the Superien InterGroup PPO. To see if your provider belongs to Superien, call (888) 315-6045 or visit www.SuperienHealthNetwork.com. For more information, contact the Local 802 Health Benefits Plan at (212) 245-4802.
ROGER BLANC APPOINTED
The Executive Board appointed Roger Blanc to the Trial Board to fill the vacancy left by Pedro Rodriguez, who died on Nov. 30. Blanc had received the next highest number of votes in the Dec. 5 Local 802 election.
Members can make an appointment for a free hearing test on Feb. 22. For more information, call Tara Donach at (212) 245-4802, ext. 101.
