Now's the Time to Make Changes in Your Health Insurance Coverage

An open enrollment period that permits changing health insurance coverage and/or adding dependents to existing coverage is in effect during the month of May. The effective date of the change will be July 1, 2006.

From May 1, 2006 to May 31, 2006, applications are being accepted in the Fund Offices from Health Fund participants who wish to change from CIGNA to an HMO, if one is available in the area. During this period also, participants may switch from an HMO to the CIGNA fee for service/OAP Plan.

If you have any questions about HMOs, contact the Equity-League Trust Fund Office, (212) 869-9380 or, if calling from outside New York City, (800) 344-5220, and ask for Ms. Barbara Costigan.

Dependents May Be Added
Also during the month of May, Health Fund participants may add dependents (including domestic partners) to their health coverage. Participants must pay for dependent coverage. Application forms should be requested from the Fund Office and returned by deadline.

All applications, whether for changing health insurance coverage or adding dependents, must be received in the Fund office by May 31, 2006. Applications received after that date will be returned without processing.
