Health & Welfare Updates due to Covid-19
Updated On: May 12, 2020

It has been a very challenging last couple of months as our worlds have turned upside down. We are facing times that I don’t think anyone would have ever imagined we would be living through. We have worked very hard with our employers and our council to see what type of process and procedures we can put in place to get everyone through these trying times.

The Board of Union Health Care Trustees had a special conference call regarding the COVID-19 and what we can do to help our members get through this pandemic. The trustees have come up with a new short-term disability plan for our members that are directly impacted by COVID-19. There are some guidelines that would have to be met for the members to qualify for the STD. Please see below.

Coverage Changes:

  • COVID-19 testing and any related visit associated with the test, including telehealth visits, is covered at 100%

  • Treatment for COVID-19 is covered at regular plan benefits

  • All virtual visits will be covered during this COVID-19 Pandemic.  MD Live is still 100%, all others covered at regular plan benefits.

    During this COVID-19 Pandemic, the definition of disabled or disability for employees has been amended to include:

  • You are subject to a government quarantine or isolation order related to the Pandemic Illness.

  • You received a written recommendation from a health care provider that you self-quarantine due to concerns related to the Pandemic Illness

  • Your employer requested that you self-quarantine.

    Other points to note:

  • Employees cannot collect unemployment and Short Term Disability (STD) at the same time – one or the other.

  • Employees that are furloughed will not automatically quality for STD, they must meet the new definition.

If you have any questions that you might qualify for this benefit, please do not hesitate to contact BMGI at 1-800-997-4586.

We wish that all of you and your families stay safe and healthy. We look forward to hopefully meeting together again after the summer break.
