Print Friendly, PDF & Email

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW!
FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN A LOSS OF COVERAGE.

Effective immediately, for members who receive a self-pay notice from the Plan administrator for continuing coverage under the Health and Welfare Plan, you will be able to make the payment directly from your bank account, provided your financial institution has added the Boilermakers 359 Health and Welfare Plan as a vendor.

To set this up, log onto your online banking site and search for “Boilermakers 359 Health/Welfare Plan”as a vendor or payee for bill payments. Please note that some financial institutions may have abbreviated the vendor name during the online banking set up, make sure that “359” is included in the name you select. Please be very careful when selecting the vendor as there are other vendors with similar names.

PLEASE DO NOT SEND PAYMENTS AS AN INTERAC E-TRANSFER,
THE PLAN CANNOT ACCEPT THIS FORM OF PAYMENT.

Your account number is your Manulife ID which is found on your direct pay card as well as on your self-pay notice.

IMPORTANT: When you transfer the funds to the Boilermakers 359 Health/Welfare Plan using online banking, please pay the exact amount on the self-pay notice. You may not “prepay” for coverage for months in the future. You may only pay the amount shown on your self-pay notice. Any over-payment will be subject to a $25.00 administration fee, any balance remaining after the administrative fee is charged will be refunded to you and NOT used as a credit towards future coverage.

When you transfer the funds to the Boilermakers 359 Health/Welfare Plan using online banking, you are certifying that you are paying either the subsidized or unsubsidized self-payment amount based on your employment as stated on your self-payment notice:

SUBSIDIZED SELF-PAYMENT: During the work month for which you were not employed or, if you were, it was ONLY with an employer required to make contributions on your behalf of the Boilermakers Lodge 359 Health & Welfare Fund.

UNSUBSIDIZED SELF-PAYMENT: During the work month, you were employed by an employer who is NOT required to make contributions to the Boilermakers Lodge 359 Health & Welfare Plan.

Should you have any questions or concerns please contact the Plan administrator at 1-877-926-4537 for further instructions.
