Welcome to the Alaska United Food and Commercial Workers Health and Welfare Trust and The Alaska United Food and Commercial Workers Pension Trust!
The Trusts were established to provide benefits for eligible member and dependents through the collective bargaining process with UFCW Local Union No. 1496. This site provides general benefit information, forms and other Trust related items.
Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC) and Glossary of Terms can be viewed here.
Effective April 1, 2017, the Alaska UFCW Health and Welfare Trust has added benefits for covered expenses provided at the Anchorage and Fairbanks Coalition Health Centers. These covered expenses are not subject to the medical deductible, coinsurance or out-of-pocket maximum provisions. Instead you pay a flat $20 copay per visit ($0 copay per visit for preventive services ) and the Plan pays the rest.Anchorage Location:
Alaska Regional Hospital Campus

Also, the Surgery Center of Anchorage and New Frontier Anesthesia were added as PPO Providers.
Effective June 1, 2017 any covered medical services by a non-PPO provider will be paid at 60% of the usual, customary and reasonable charge.
IMPORTANT: Non-emergency orthopedic surgery expenses are not covered by the Plan unless the doctor and facility are in the PPO network or the surgery is approved through BridgeHealth. All orthopedic surgeries should be pre-authorized through Aetna and you should be careful to make sure your Provider and care facility are in the Plan’s PPO network.
Covered medical services by a PPO Provider or at a PPO facility, will continue to be paid at 80% of the contracted rate.
