  • Utilize the Operators’ Health Center located on the Countryside Campus.
    • DOT Physicals are now available; however, you must call to make an appointment (708) 485-2273. These appointments are longer in duration; therefore, walk-in appointments may not be accommodated.
  • Visit CVS/Target retail store MinuteClinics – most services are free; however, there are some cash-pay services so please inquire
  • ATI Physical Therapy facilities will provide free physical therapy if confirmed as medically necessary
  • ERS (Member Assistance Program) provides up to five free counseling sessions per episode

Be sure to check your hours on My150 to ensure your employer is reporting your hours/contributions timely and also keep an eye on your Credit Bank. By next year’s open enrollment (January – February 2020), you will have increased your Credit Bank and will have the opportunity to select a different health plan option that best fits your family’s needs.

If you have any questions regarding this Plan, please contact Member Services at (708) 579-6600.

Apprentice Members New to Local 150

For those members that have not yet been inducted into the Union and have not been dispatched, the Fund Office staff is traveling down to ASIP to provide important information to these new members regarding their fringe benefits. These sessions focus on what new members need to do at different stages of their career; but the common goal is for members to take an active role in understanding their fringe benefits and to STAY INFORMED.  Once you are eligible for benefits under the health & welfare plan, take advantage of the FREE SERVICES as noted above.
