​​New Rule for Hardship Withdrawals to Prevent Eviction Beginning January 1, 2022


TRANSPARENCY IN COVERAGE


The Cement and Concrete Workers District Council Welfare Fund is required to post certain information on a public website pursuant to the Transparency in Coverage Regulations published in the Federal Register on November 12, 2020. The Transparency Rule is intended to make information about the prices charged for health care available to the general public and plan participants.

The files attached to the link below are maintained by the Fund's third-party administrator, Empire Blue Cross and will be updated on the first of each month.
