IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM COBANC
Effective July 1, 2023, COBANC will be processing all benefit claims, except dental, in-house at the union office. We have posted on our website, cobanc.org, all the new forms with our address on all but the out-of-network dental claim form. Please dispose of any old forms you may have in your possession. Since 2004 HealthPlex has been our third-party provider processing all our benefits. HealthPlex is a dental network and we were paying them more to administer our benefits. Now that we will be administering our benefits here at the union office, we will be saving the fund approximately $18,000 per year. We expect to have some growing pains during the initial few months, but we hope to provide you with a more seamless process, nothing like what we have been experiencing this past year. HealthPlex will continue to be our dental panel. We advise everyone to stay in-network and decrease their out-of-pocket expense.
