IBEW 292 Benefits is informing members that they may have received an email or postcard notice regarding a settlement of class action claims involving the Plan’s former health insurance carrier, Blue Cross Blue Shield. The settlement may provide recovery rights to members of the I.B.E.W. 292 Health Care Plan. Based on the federal court’s orders regarding the settlement, Blue Cross Blue Shield is required to notify all potential claimants of the settlement and how they can file a claim.
We are aware of the settlement and the fact many current and former members are receiving notices informing them that they may be eligible to receive funds. The emails, postcards, etc., that members are receiving should be reviewed and acted upon by as deemed appropriate by each member.
Note: IBEW 292 Benefits cannot answer questions or advise members on what they should do in terms of the settlement and will NOT be filing a claim on behalf of the members. However, the Plan’s attorney will be filing a claim on behalf of the Plan.
The Plan’s 100% coverage (no member cost share) for in-network PPO physician “virtual” telehealth visits has been extended through December 31, 2021
