SAV-RX ECONOMY PRESCRIPTION DRUG PLAN
AFFORDABLE PRESCRIPTION DRUG BENEFITS FOR UNION FAMILIES
The strength of our Union depends on the strength and health of our members and their families. Healthy laborers live longer, have longer careers, are safer on the job site, experience fewer incidents of disability, and live better. Midwest Region Laborers is committed to supporting our members' health and ensuring access to the services you need when you need them. American workers and their families have been under ever-increasing financial pressure for far too long, and no area of the economy has experienced more inflationary pressure than the healthcare industry. Prescription drug costs, in particular, have brought many families to the breaking point. The rising cost of medications impacts everyone, but Midwest Region Laborers is working actively to protect the interests of our union members and their families.
INTRODUCING THE SAV-RX ECONOMY PRESCRIPTION DRUG PLAN
Midwest Region Laborers has partnered with Sav-Rx, the leading Union Medication Benefits Manager, to offer a voluntary benefit that ensures you and your immediate family can access affordable, reliable, cost-effective prescription coverage.
WHO IS THIS PLAN DESIGNED FOR?
This program is designed primarily for Union members and their families who experience gaps in their traditional coverage options, such as retirees under the age of 65 who are ineligible for Medicare, apprentices who have not yet become eligible for benefits under their health and welfare plan, or workers who lack the hours required to maintain reliable coverage under their traditional plan.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
All active and retired members of Midwest Region Laborers are eligible to participate in this prescription drug plan, including immediate and extended family members, such as children, siblings, aunts and uncles, and parents who may lack reliable prescription coverage. Individuals enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid should only use this benefit as an alternative for specific drugs that are not covered under their Medicare or Medicaid Plan(s).
