DeCare Dental Insurance, a dental program sponsored by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, does not participate with Central Pennsylvania Teamsters Health & Welfare Fund. Services performed by non-network providers, including providers participating with the DeCare network, will be paid as out-of-network and the member will be responsible for all non-covered services and balances. DeCare Dental Insurance is currently recruiting dental providers nationwide. Some of these dental providers have been contacting Teamsters members regarding the DeCare network. Do not be misled into thinking that services provided by DeCare dentists will be paid in-network by the Fund. Call the Health and Welfare Fund if you have any questions.

DID YOU KNOW the price of medical procedure from one facility to another can be different by hundreds or even thousands of dollars? It’s true. Now you have the power to see these differences and choose where you go for your medical procedures. In addition, visiting Fair Price facilities for certain procedures could earn a reward!!
Introducing Healthcare Bluebook
What is Healthcare Bluebook
Starting April 1, 2018 Healthcare Bluebook has been selected by the Central PA Teamsters as an added healthcare benefit to help you shop for care, compare facilities, save money on healthcare services and earn rewards. Did you know that in-network prices for the same procedure can vary by over 500% depending on the facility you choose? Our web and mobile applications make it easy to save money on hundreds of the most common medical services and procedure by showing you the cost ranges in your area, and providing you with a selection of FAIR PRICE facilities.
What is the “FAIR PRICE?”
The FAIR PRICE is the amount you should reasonably expect a service or procedure to cost in your area. Bluebook FAIR PRICES are based on the actual amount paid on the claim, not the billed amount, and reflect the discounts that the health plan has negotiated with the facility.
For services that include more than one provider, separate FAIR PRICE amounts may be shown for facility, physician and anesthesiologist.
How do I find a FAIR PRICE?
Finding a FAIR PRICE provider is easy using Healthcare Bluebook. Type in a search term or use the drop down menus to search for a particular service. Select the service you are looking for from the search results. Review the price range in your area and find the local FAIR PRICE for your service. Scroll down the page and review provider options for the service. Bluebook conveniently color codes all the provider options to make it easy for you to identify those providers with prices at or below the FAIR PRICE.
How will an employee know that a service is rewards-eligible?
When a member searches for an eligible service within the Healthcare Bluebook website or mobile app, an alert will display on the results page; this indicates the service is eligible for a Go Green to Get Green reward. The dollar amount ($25, $50, or $100) will be clearly displayed with a link to more information on the program. The employee, spouse or dependent that receives an eligible service are all eligible to earn a reward through this program
What procedures are reward eligible?
Based on best practices, Healthcare Bluebook developed the following procedure categories and dollar amounts for the incentive program:
|Most CT Scans||$25|
|TTE with doppler||$25|
|Ear tube placement (tympanostomy)||$50|
|Heart perfusion imaging||$50|
|Removal of adenoids||$50|
