New Highmark network benefit cards have been mailed to all participants. You should start using these cards effective July 1, 2024.




The Board of Trustees of the Central Pennsylvania Teamsters Health and Welfare Fund are pleased to announce that, effective July 1, 2024, the Fund will be moving to Highmark as our new medical network to provide a more robust national network of medical providers. This change is expected to provide additional savings to the Fund based on Highmark’s network discounts. Participants and beneficiaries seeking treatment should experience a greater choice of providers with minimal disruption through the Highmark network of providers. The Fund is taking the necessary measures to ensure this is a seamless transition for you and your family. New ID cards were mailed to participants on June 10th to start using effective July 1, 2024. Your prescription, dental, and vision provider networks are not affected by this change. If you would like to verify if your doctors are considered In-Network with Highmark please visit…..
