Teamsters Joint Council No. 83 of Virginia
Health & Welfare and Pension Funds
The Fund is regularly receiving guidance from legal counsel and plan professionals regarding any required changes. Part of our Emergency Action Plan is to close our doors to the public. The Fund Office is not taking ANY in-person meetings starting Friday, March 20, 2020. This decision protects the population we serve and our employees during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Effective March 18, 2020, the Plan will cover items and services furnished to a Participant or Dependent via telehealth visits to a healthcare provider for reasons not related to the detection of SARS-CoV-2 or the diagnosis of COVID-19. The Board of Trustees has extended the telehealth benefit through December 31, 2021. Effective November 1, 2020, only in-network providers will be covered for Telehealth Services.
We will make announcements of any plan changes as they become available.
