Insurance Change Effective September 1st 2017!

Important Announcement

For All Members Covered under the Southern Operators Health Fund

Effective September 1, 2017, the PPO Network is being changed from Cigna PPO to Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. The change is expected to be a positive one for both you and the fund as steeper discounts are anticipated under the new PPO.

Within the next few days, you should receive two new cards in the mail. One is a medical card and the other a prescription drug card. Please remember to identify yourself as an Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield enrollee by showing your medical identification card at every visit with a network provider. Please begin using the new card September 1, 2017 and destroy your old cards at that time. Also, please remember to identify yourself as a CVS/Caremark enrollee by using that card when purchasing prescribed medications.

Additional information will be included in the mailing with your new cards. Please read the notice thoroughly as it will have important information regarding your coverage.
