PLANNING A VACATION — KNOW BEFORE YOU GO!

Local 1262’s Assistant Field Director for Benefits Betty Laughery reminds our members to “Know Before You Go” this summer. If you are planning a trip take a few minutes to prepare ahead of time for emergencies by making a list of the In-Network Urgent Care Center or Hospital that is nearest to your destination.  You can locate these In-Network Providers by visiting www.horizonblue.com.  Remember if you use an out-of-network provider – even when travelling – your claim may not be covered under your insurance.
