With these new insurance card we received in the mail today does this mean our insurance is going to change soon? I believe we need a meeting as to what this change is all about if our insurance is not changing then we should not get new cards. When I receive a new card that tells me a change has been made and I should be made aware of the change.
Simple answer – it depends. If you are employed in Owensboro and are a team member not represented by UFCW Local 227, you’ve already been made aware of your 2019 benefit options, participated in the annual enrollment process, and are preparing to enjoy some new & improved benefits. However, if you are represented by UFCW Local 227, your benefits have not changed. You are being issued a new card because it’s the beginning of a new calendar year – and that’s what we do for our team members.
Quite simply: New cards = new year. If you are a member of Local 227, it means nothing more than that. In your question, you indicated a need for a meeting. If you’d like to meet to discuss (or to discuss via phone), please call me directly. My office number is 765.564.7209.
Happy New Year!
Mark Berry, Vice President, People (HR, Safety, & Health Services)
