Effective June 1, 2014, TeamCare will become your new health benefits provider.
When your health insurance transitions to TeamCare from the UPS Company plan, you'll be joining 250,000 Teamster family members who have long trusted TeamCare for their health care. With our new UPS members, TeamCare will now be home to nearly 500,000 Teamster family members making it one of the largest health funds in the country.
You'll find that under TeamCare, UPS Teamsters continue to pay NO premiums, NO deductibles until the last contract year and in many cases NO co-payments for medical, prescription, vision, dental, life and disability insurance. In addition, there remains no annual maximum on the medical benefits that can be used and the out-of-pocket cap of $2,000 per family is better than that offered under the UPS Company Plan. In addition, you'll find that TeamCare’s co-payments for medical office visits, routine physicals and other services remain the same as you pay under the current company plan.
Through BlueCross BlueShield (Medical Mutual for Ohio members and PHCS for SW Missouri members), TeamCare participants have access to nearly every hospital and medical provider. In fact, TeamCare is one of the largest preferred provider organization in the country. The doctors and other providers you use in the UPS Company Plan are most likely already part of TeamCare's network.
