1400 Hour Plan Benefits

Establishing Eligibility

To be eligible for benefits in any month, you must meet these four requirements:

  1. You are a 1400 Hour or 1560 Hour employee under the collective bargaining agreement between your union and your employer.
  2. You are on the seniority list as of the first day of that month.
  3. You worked at least 80 hours for a participating employer during the preceding month.
  4. Your participating employer made the required contribution to JBT for your coverage.

When Coverage Begins

  • If you meet eligibility requirements before the 15th of the month: Your coverage starts, retroactively, on the first day of that month. (Example: If you meet the eligibility requirements as of February 10, your coverage begins on February 1.)
  • If you meet eligibility requirements between the 15th and last day of the month: Your coverage starts on the first day of the following month. (Example: If you meet the eligibility requirements as of February 22, your coverage begins on March 1.)

Maintaining Coverage

Your employer-paid coverage continues as long as you:

  1. You remain on the 1400 Hour or 1560 Hour seniority list as of the beginning of each month, and
  2. You worked at least 80 hours during the previous month.

Here’s an example:

Month Hours Worked Your eligibility for employer-sponsored coverage
August 80 Establishes your eligibility for coverage through September 30.
September 80 Your September hours establish your eligibility for coverage through October 31.
October 80 Your October hours establish your eligibility for coverage through November 30.
November 80 Your November hours establish your eligibility for coverage through December 31.

Check out the examples under the Losing Eligibility/Coverage section to see what happens with eligibility if you do not work required hours, if you leave your job, or if you are laid off.

Dependent Coverage

Your spouse and dependent children are eligible for benefits when you are eligible. Their coverage is not automatic; you need to complete enrollment for them. Get information about the enrollment process and required paperwork in the Enroll in Benefits section below.

Dependents include the following:

  • Spouse/registered domestic partner.
  • Children under age 26, including:
    • Natural children.
    • Stepchildren.
    • Legally adopted children/children placed with you for adoption.
    • Children for whom you are the legal guardian.
    • Children of your registered domestic partner who depend on you for support and who live with you in a regular parent/child relationship.
    • Children for whom the court has issued a qualified medical child support order (QMCSO).
  • Children older than age 26 who are permanently and totally disabled and rely on you for support; they must have been covered by the plan before reaching age 26.

Contact JBT to confirm your dependents meet the plan’s eligibility criteria.

Losing Eligibility/Coverage

You and your dependents may lose eligibility for the following reasons:

  • You do not work 80 hours or more in a month.
  • Your employment ends.
  • You are not on the month’s seniority list.
  • Your employer stops making the contributions required for your coverage.
  • You die.
  • Your dependent no longer meets the plan’s definition of a dependent—for example, your child turns 26 or you and your spouse divorce.
  • The plan is discontinued.

Special rules apply for layoffs and disability; see the examples below. Also, you can lose eligibility for other reasons, such as being called to active duty military service or taking a leave from your job. Contact JBT for more details.

If you lose eligibility because of your hours worked, seniority, or leaving your job, your employer-paid coverage will end on the earlier of:

  • The end of the month following the month you last worked 80 hours, or
  • The end of the month your employment ends, regardless of the number of hours you worked during the month.

Here are two examples showing how your hours worked maintain your eligibility for coverage and what happens if you do not meet eligibility requirements; contact JBT if you have questions related to your situation.

You Quit Your Job

Month Hours Worked Your eligibility for employer-sponsored coverage
August 80 Establishes your eligibility for coverage through September 30.
September 80 Establishes your eligibility for coverage through October 31.
October 80—You leave your job on October 25 Your coverage ends on October 31. Although you worked the required hours, you quit on October 25. So, you are not eligible for coverage in November because you are not on the seniority list on November 1.

You will have the option to pay for and continue coverage through COBRA.
November 0—You left your job Your employer-paid coverage ended on October 31.

You Retire

Month Hours Worked Your eligibility for employer-sponsored coverage
July 80 Establishes your eligibility for coverage through August 31.
August 80 Establishes your eligibility for coverage through September 30.
September 80—You retire on September 25 Although your September hours normally would have established your eligibility for coverage through October 31, you retired in September. So you will not be on the seniority list on October 1. Your coverage ends on September 30.

You will have the option to pay for and continue coverage through COBRA, or you may have the option to enroll in the retiree plan.
October 0—You retired! Your employer-paid coverage ended on September 30.

Disability and Layoff Protection

If you don’t work 80 hours because you are injured or sick, or because of a layoff, you may continue your employer-paid coverage as follows:

  • Industrial injury—Continue coverage until the end of the month that your Workers’ Compensation benefits end or for 12 months, whichever comes first.
  • Sickness or non-work related injury—Continue coverage until you return to work or for 12 months, whichever comes first.
  • Layoff—Continue coverage until you are recalled to work or for 12 months, whichever comes first.

Here’s an example showing how you can maintain coverage during a layoff; contact JBT if you have questions related to your situation.

Month Hours Worked Your eligibility for employer-sponsored coverage
August 80 Establishes your eligibility for coverage through September 30.
September 80—You are laid off on September 25 Establishes your eligibility for coverage through October 31, because you are still on the seniority list.
October 0 You are covered through October 31 based on hours worked in September.
November–October 0 per month You are covered through October of the following year, unless you are called back to work. When you go back to work, the plan’s rules for maintaining eligibility apply.

Options for Continuing Coverage

If you lose employer-paid coverage, you may have two self-pay options for continuing your coverage for a limited time: JBT self-pay and COBRA continuation coverage.

As an alternative to the self-pay options, you may want to consider purchasing health insurance coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Learn more.

JBT Self-Pay Coverage

Coverage and cost

If you purchase JBT self-pay coverage, you get our entire benefit package (medical, prescription drug, dental, vision, and life insurance) and pay its full cost.

The monthly cost for JBT self-pay coverage for most participants is:

  • Advantage PPO—$1,644.00.
  • Prudent Buyer PPO—$1,784.00.
  • Kaiser HMO—$1,704.00.

If you elect JBT self-pay coverage, you and your dependents will not be entitled to elect COBRA coverage after self-pay coverage ends.

When you can self-pay and for how long

You become eligible for JBT self-pay in the event of:

  • A layoff—You can elect self-pay for up to 24 additional months after your employer-paid coverage ends.
  • A work-related disability or personal medical leave—You can elect self-pay for up to 24 additional months after your employer-paid coverage ends.
  • An approved leave absence—You can elect self-pay for up to 24 additional months after your employer-paid coverage ends.
  • A plant closure—You can elect self-pay for up to 12 additional months after your employer-paid coverage ends.

Note: Except in the case of a plant closure you cannot exercise JBT plan provisions to self-pay when you lose coverage because you are terminated, quit, or retire. However, you may have COBRA rights, as explained below.

Electing JBT self-pay coverage

  • To elect the JBT self-pay option, contact your employer or JBT.
  • Your self-payments can be set up through your employer, or you can pay JBT directly.
  • You must make self-payments by the 6th of each month.
  • Self-payments must start the month after your employer-paid coverage ends.
  • Unlike COBRA, you do not have 60 days to elect self-pay coverage, and there is no grace period for self-payments.

COBRA Continuation Coverage

Coverage and cost

With COBRA, you can pay for just medical and prescription drug coverage (core coverage) or add dental and vision (full coverage). The monthly premiums as of October 1, 2020 for most participants, are:

  • Core coverage—Medical and prescription drug coverage for yourself and dependents:
    • Advantage PPO—$1,473.00.
    • Prudent Buyer PPO—$1,806.00.
    • Kaiser HMO—$1,500.00.
  • Full coverage—Medical, prescription drug, dental, and vision coverage for yourself and dependents:
    • Advantage PPO—$1,578.00.

    • Kaiser HMO—$1,605.00.

Qualifying event and how long you can self-pay for COBRA coverage

You or your dependents may become eligible for COBRA due to:

  • Termination, retirement, approved leave, disability, sickness, layoff, or plant closure—You may pay for COBRA coverage for up to 18 months less the number of months that your employer paid for coverage during your disability, sickness, or layoff. For example, if your employer paid for 12 months of coverage during your disability, you may elect COBRA coverage for six additional months.

    If you or a dependent is disabled when COBRA coverage would normally end, you can purchase an additional 11 months of COBRA coverage at a higher premium. Contact JBT for details.
  • Your death—Your spouse and dependents may be able to elect COBRA for up to 36 months.
  • Your divorce—Your spouse and stepchildren may be able to elect COBRA for up to 36 months.
  • Your children no longer qualify as dependents—Children may be able to elect COBRA for up to 36 months.

Enrolling in COBRA coverage

You will receive a notice from JBT when you become eligible for COBRA coverage. You need to notify JBT within 60 days if your spouse or dependent children no longer meet the dependent eligibility criteria, and you want to enroll them in COBRA.

Your COBRA notice will include details about how long your coverage runs and the monthly cost and instructions for paying your premium.

You need to enroll and make the required premium payments by the deadlines included on the notice.

Health Insurance Marketplace

Coverage and cost

As an alternative to COBRA, you may want to consider your state’s Health Insurance Marketplace exchange (called Covered California in California). The marketplace may offer you a range of health insurance plans to meet your needs, and, depending on your income, you may be eligible for subsidies that reduce your premium cost.

If you do not live in California year-round, you may be able to find Health Insurance Marketplace options in your state.

Also, depending on your income level, you may be eligible for other public options like Medi-Cal, Medicaid, or the Children’s Health Insurance Program.

When you can enroll in a marketplace plan

You may become eligible to purchase coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace when you lose your employer-paid coverage. You need to enroll within 60 days of your loss of coverage.

Non-1400 Hour/Seasonal

Establishing Eligibility

Coverage begins on the first day of the month that you meet all four eligibility conditions above.

Maintaining Coverage

Medical, Prescription Drug, and Substance Abuse

Your coverage continues as long as you work at least 80 hours in the preceding month, and you meet the other conditions listed above. For example, 80 hours of work in August establishes your eligibility for coverage through September 30. And if you work 80 hours in September, but only 40 in October 2020, your medical coverage will end on October 31, 2020.

Dental

Your coverage continues as long as you work at least 80 hours in the preceding month, and you meet the other conditions listed above.

For example, if you work 80 hours in September, but only 40 in October 2020, your medical coverage will end on October 31, 2020, and your dental coverage will continue to November 30, 2020.

A 90-day coverage extension may also apply. If your dentist submits a treatment plan while you are covered, you can continue to receive benefits for that treatment for up to 90 days. Continuing the example above, you can receive benefits for your dental treatment through the end of February for a treatment plan based on work done by November 30.

Vision

You need to work at least 80 hours in one month during a calendar year to establish vision coverage for the next year.

Note, you cannot enroll your children in vision coverage.

Dependent Coverage

Be sure to notify JBT immediately whenever a dependent loses coverage or if any of the other events listed above occur. If you fail to do so, you may:

  • Be liable to repay benefits provided to an ineligible person. JBT has the right to offset the amounts paid against future medical, dental, or vision benefits or take any other action to recover any overpayment of benefits.
  • Lose the right to elect and obtain COBRA continuation coverage.
  • Delay claims payments while you resolve eligibility issues.
