ATTENTION MEMBERS OF TEAMSTERS LOCAL 89 COVERED UNDER TEAMCARE
As the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) situation continues to develop, we are seeing individuals across the country being quarantined who have not been diagnosed with COVID-19, but have possibly been exposed to it as a result of a diagnosed family member, etc.
We have received numerous questions from members covered under a TeamCare health insurance plan as to whether TeamCare would grant disability to such individuals who have been quarantined but not diagnosed with COVID-19. (Note: Individuals who have been officially diagnosed with COVID-19 are covered by disability under TeamCare plans.)
President Zuckerman contacted TeamCare about this issue and was informed that the fund trustees will be holding a meeting next week to discuss this very question. We will update our members of TeamCare’s decision regarding this situation as soon as it is available.
