Today, the United States of America represented by the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York entered into an agreement with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters whereby in consideration of its terms and conditions the United States of America upon order from the court will dismiss its action against the International Brotherhood of Teamsters sounding in provisions of the Racketeer Influence and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, 18 U.S.C. Section 1964 and will thereby extinguish the consent order of March 14, 1989.

Have You Been Charged a $350 Copay for an ER Visit?

Have You Been Charged a $350 Copay for an ER Visit?

We’re looking for examples of members or their covered dependents who have been:

1) charged a $350 co-pay at the Emergency Room, after being admitted and stayed at the hospital for more than 24 hours… or
2) charged a $350 ER co-pay at the Emergency Room, after being sent there by the family doctor or by an Urgent Care office… or
3) charged for “out-of-network” services at the ER because the care provider on staff at that time was not “in-network”.

There is an active grievance filed against inappropriately charging the $350 ER copays and we’re looking for examples of such incidences from all 12 breweries.

If any of this has happened to you, or to your covered dependents – please contact the Union office and give us some details on the incident and what, if any, resolution was reached.
