  • COVID-19 TeamCare Updates

    TeamCare Layoff Benefits

    We have been informed by the IBT that the TeamCare Board of Trustees have approved a plan amendment granting up to eight weeks of TeamCare Layoff Coverage at no cost to members who are laid off between March 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020.

    This is an issue that many Local Unions across the country, including Teamsters Local 89, have been asking TeamCare to address. We are thrilled that the fund has agreed to provide this critical extended benefit to members who become laid off during this national crisis.

    TeamCare Expanded Coverage

    The fund has also announced an additional amendment that includes waiving all coinsurance, co-pays, and deductibles for both the test and treatment administered for COVID-19.

    This is an incredibly important change, and we applaud the fund for ensuring that all TeamCare participants who contract COVID-19 can be diagnosed and treated at zero cost through the end of the year.

    According to the release from TeamCare, attached here, the specifics of the plan amendment are as follows:

    • Waives prior authorizations for diagnostic tests and related covered services that are medically necessary and consistent with the Centers for Disease Control andPrevention (CDC) guidance for members if diagnosed with COVID-19.

    • Provides the appropriate medically necessary diagnostic tests for COVID-19, at no cost to covered members.

    • Provides all subsequent needed care once a COVID-19 diagnosis occurs, including inpatient hospital stays and treatment, at no cost to covered members.
