No change to health benefits for UMWA members, retirees after passage of health care bill

Date: 
March 31, 2010

The passage of the health care bill by Congress in March "will not reduce or change any of the current health care benefits UMWA active members, retirees and their families receive," UMWA President Roberts said.

“And it will not mean a tax increase for UMWA members or their families, now or in the future," Roberts said. "Any excise taxes that our members’ benefits may be subject to won't become effective until 2018. If some portion of those benefits were to be subject to that tax at that time, it would be paid by the insurance providers, not individuals members.”
