Medical and dental
Medical and dental benefits are provided through UNITE HERE Health. Visit the UNITE HERE Health site for more information regarding the medical plans offered to its members. USC Local 11 employees are covered under the HOTEL plan.
Approximately 3 months after hire date, UNITE HERE Health will mail a packet containing explanatory material, an enrollment card, a medical plan choice card and a pre-addressed postage paid envelope to return the completed materials.
Employees hired on or after June 1, 2011 become eligible for benefits coverage in the month following five consecutive months of working 100 hours or more after the date of hire, and following a two-month waiting period thereafter. For example, an employee hired on January 1 would become eligible on August 1. Eligibility is maintained as long as employee works 100 or more hours in a calendar month; if the employee works less than that in any given month, eligibility ends at the end of the following month. After fulfilling the 100 hour eligibility requirement for two consecutive years, the eligibility requirement is 80 hours per calendar month.
