Below is a list of vendors that the Midwest Operating Engineers have partnered with to ensure that we are providing quality benefits with the most cost effective outcome.

  • NEW! Absolute Solutions Imaging Network – Effective January 1, 2021, the Welfare Fund has partnered with Absolute Solutions to provide FREE MRI, CT, or PET scans. This partnership will be available to all eligible members, eligible dependents, and eligible retirees of the Retiree Welfare Plan. Absolute Solutions has a nationwide network consisting of 3,600 facilities. By using one of these facilities, you will not have to pay any monies toward a deductible, a co-payment or toward co-insurance; regardless of which health plan option you are covered under. Scheduling is easy! If your provider orders a MRI, CT, or PET scan all you must do is first call Absolute Solutions at 1-800-321-5040. Absolute Solutions will handle the rest. By calling the toll-free number, Absolute Solutions will locate a convenient location, coordinate the patient pre-screening/test preparation, and provide details to the patient. Your prescribing provider will receive a medical report within 4-5 days. This partnership will provide valuable cost savings for the members of Local 150 and the Welfare Fund!
