32BJ HEALTH FUND FACTS

Press contact: HealthFund@32bjfunds.com

  • The 32BJ Health Fund serves members of the SEIU 32BJ union and their families.
  • The union members are cleaners, property maintenance workers, doorpersons, security officers, window cleaners, building engineers, school and food service workers, and airport workers in 11 states and Washington, DC.
  • The Fund aggregates employer contributions from 5,000 employers, ranging from small businesses to global real estate firms, and uses these contributions to provide benefits to 200,000 people.
  • Members pay $0 premium, $0 deductible and $0 copays for many preferred providers.
  • The Fund has a unique relationship with its plan participants. Members of SEIU 32BJ get their insurance through the Health Fund, not their employer. Employees may be hesitant to discuss personal health issues with their employers but the Fund’s plan participants frequently contact the Fund for recommendations about healthcare providers and trust the information that the Fund provides.
  • The Health Fund works with 32BJ and contributing employers to communicate regularly with members through conventional mailings, social media, and on-site workplace meetings to make sure members understand the benefits they are entitled to. The Fund also runs its own on-site call center to answer questions about its benefits.
  • 91 percent of the Health Fund’s members say that they are satisfied with their insurance, and 88 percent of members trust the Health Fund to recommend programs to them.
