Joining a trade union comes with many benefits. The foremost, of course, is the power to bargain collectively for fair wages. Establishing decent work hours and working conditions are also important advantages enjoyed by persons who become union members.
The Joint Industry Board of the Electrical Industry has served IBEW Local Union No. 3 and its employers since 1943, in the city of Bellmore, NY. Much has changed since then, but the governing principle of the group has not—that is furthering the career and life interests of members and their families.
Included in the many services offered by the JIBEI is access to a first-rate electrical union dentist, like those at Bellmore Family Dental. Members are given three options.
The Empire BlueCross BlueShield Fee-For-Service Program entitles you to visit the dentist of your choice. You will have to pay only those expenses that go over the maximum allowance.
The second option is the Empire Dental Managed Network Program. With this plan you are required to pay some of the expenses yourself. You are also required to remain with your dentist for a set amount of time (one year).
The third and final option is the DDS Inc. Program. Again, you will not have to pay your own way if you use a network dentist. It is important to note, however, that certain limits apply. One advantage of this plan is that you are able to switch between network dentists.
As a participant in any one of these plans, you will be able to cover your spouse and children. The programs include a wide range of services, including preventative, surgical, and other types of care. You will not need pre-screening for the the Empire Dental Managed Program, nor for the DDS program. With the Empire Fee-For-Service Program, screening is required for some procedures before you or your family member can begin treatment. However, this is not needed for basic services.
Securing the health, welfare, and safety of you and your family is an integral part of pursuing your trade. Without a sound and solid medical and dental plan you leave yourself open to unacceptable risk. Everyone gets sick at some point. And there are certain dental issues that everyone must deal with at particular times. It is essential that you have a plan in place for such eventualities, so that you are not forced to pay exorbitant fees for one-off visits. The JIBEI is dedicated to giving you options for doing just that. As a member of the JIBEI of your best dental options is Bellmore Family Dental in the Bellmore, NY area.
