LMHF is a coalition of local municipal management and union leaders that have combined their efforts to create a team with a collaborative approach and shared responsibility between labor and management to produce and administer a plan of benefits that offers choice, flexibility and manageable costs for the members.
Assist you through any unresolved issues regarding your member ID cards, unpaid claims, etc. and answer any questions you have regarding your medical, Rx and dental benefits.
Eligible dependents include:
It is required that any dependent covered by your insurance plan be verified within 60 days of the benefit start date. Failure to provide requested documentation within the timeframe will result in unverified dependents being removed from your coverage.
Labor-Management Healthcare Fund (LMHF) has retained a third-party administrator, Verifi1, to manage dependent verification and eligibility.
Either you can submit your documentation directly to Verifi1 or we can fax in your documentation. If you choose the later, please provide copies of dependent verification documents to HR with your enrollment forms.

Sometimes called supplemental insurance or employee-paid benefits, voluntary benefits are offered by the employer through the workplace where employees can choose to buy the plans which are not offered as employer paid benefits, but they receive a group discount.
Voluntary benefits are insurance products that employees may choose to purchase with premiums paid through a pre or post-tax deductions from the employee’s biweekly paycheck.
