The Health Fund's
Annual Family Statement
In order to ensure that the MCASF Local 725 Health & Welfare Plan has up-to-date information on you and your family members, the Plan requires that you complete and return the Annual Family Statement each year.
Why is this information required? The MCASF Local 725 Health & Welfare Fund is self-funded, which simply means we pay for each approved claim submitted by participants. Trustees of the plan have a fiduciary duty to ensure that plan assets are used appropriately, meaning solely for the benefit of eligible participants - Local 725 members and their eligible dependent family members. The Annual Family Statement allows the plan to ensure plan dollars are being used appropriately, to minimize waste and fraud. This helps plan dollars go further to provide benefits for Local 725 members
The Health Fund sent out the statement in November 2021 and gave 45 days to return the statement. The Fund then sent out 3 reminders since then, any Annual Statements that were not received by the extended due date of MARCH 15th, are now in non-compliance and those members are suspended from coverage and payment of claims is delayed until receipt of the family statement!
