Annual Family Statement
for Actively Working Members on Health Coverage
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 statement is required each year whether you had no changes from the previous statement or when you last provided an enrollment form.
The Benefit Office sent out the 2022 Annual Family Statement on November 1st, please check your mailbox for this important form. You can also get a copy of the form by scanning the QR code or going to the Health Documents Tab. You can also complete the enrollment document on your secure Participant Portal, click on the icon and once you have logged into your portal, the enrollment document is in the Form section to the left-hand side. It is very important for you to complete the form and return it to us by December 1, 2022 to ensure that your coverage is not suspended and your claims are being paid without delay.
If you recently submitted your 2021 Annual Family Statement, you will still be required to complete the 2022 Annual Family Statement
