Coverage

Dental

  • Use this form to decline Welfare Fund dental and/or vision benefits for yourself and eligible dependents. You must sign this form and have it notarized.

  • After you have read the dental claim form instructions (below) you are ready to fill out the dental claim form as needed.

  • These instructions explain how to fill out your dental claim form either after treatment or for pre-treatment estimates for more complicated procedures such as periodontic surgery, bridges, crowns, inlays, dentures and other procedures that cost over $500 in a 90-day period.

  • As a new member you are automatically enrolled in the Scheduled Benefit Plan. If you wish to enroll in one of the other UFT Welfare Fund dental options use this form. All other members and retirees who wish to transfer from one UFT Welfare Fund dental plan to another can do so annually from Sept. 1 – Oct. 15, using this form. The new plan becomes effective Nov. 1.

  • For Welfare Fund members who are using a non-participating dentist, your reimbursement will be according to this dental fee schedule; for those using a participating dentist, there will be no cost to the member except for co-pays listed in this schedule for a few services.

  • For UFT members in the Florida area, this is the Schedule of Benefits. When you use a UFT Welfare Fund participating dentist, you will be provided with the services listed in the Schedule of Covered Dental Expenses without charge except for those few services where a co-payment is required. Since usual and customary dental charges generally exceed the allowances, this represents an overall savings to you. If you use a non-participating dentist, you will be reimbursed according to this schedule.

Health Benefits

  • In order to provide this lower limit of prescription drug benefits, the Fund requested a waiver of the requirement that the coverage limit be at least $750,000 for 2011. That waiver was granted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services based on the Fund’s representation that providing $750,000 in coverage for prescription drugs for 2011 would result in a significant decrease in your access to benefits. This waiver is valid for one year.

  • Use our online form to enroll in the UFT Welfare Fund.
