How The Low Option Plan Works

For COBRA Participants and Extended Coverage Participants Only

Only COBRA The acronym for the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 which allows for the purchase of coverage after loss of eligibility due to certain qualifying events. Extended Coverage Program participants are eligible to enroll in the Low Option Plan.

The network organization, which varies by location, contracts with physicians, hospitals and other health care providers to provide services at contracted rates.

(See the Summary Of Benefits part of the website for benefit information)

The Low Option Plan covers a range of medical services, including hospital treatment. However, to keep costs down, the benefits are not as comprehensive as those offered by the Fund's PPO plan. The Low Option Plan does not include benefits for wellness, vision, prescription drugs, dental care, life insurance, accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance, and it covers network services at a lower benefit level.
