The Welfare Fund Board of Trustees is proud to announce their partnership with Activate Healthcare, the Union Division of Everside, and their Family Medical Centers effective April 1, 2021. If you are an eligible active member or eligible retiree of the Retiree Welfare Plan (RWP), you and your covered eligible dependents will be able to use the Activate Healthcare Family Medical Centers. Covered services provided at the centers are free!
This partnership opens access to Family Medical Centers to our eligible members and families that reside near Rockford, Illinois, and Davenport, Iowa that were not previously available. These state-of-the-art facilities will provide the same services as our existing Operators’ Health Centers (OHCs) in Countryside and Merrillville, including:
- Same- or next-day appointments that are convenient and secure
- Comprehensive care with qualified providers that involves service offerings for preventive care and routine checkups, wellness coaching, mental health screenings and support, urgent needs, chronic condition management, and much more
- Follow-up appointments to schedule in-person office visits (when necessary), send ePrescriptions, initiate lab work, or provide referrals
- National virtual care program through computer or mobile device (video or phone call) for 24/7 access from anywhere
Activate Healthcare is currently operating 69 clinics across the country that is now available to all our eligible members and retirees (including Medicare-eligible retirees), and their covered eligible dependents. We are excited about expanding access to quality health care to eligible active members, retirees and dependents of the Local 150!
