Dear DCSMEC Members:
After our careful evaluation of the Districts benefits this year, DCSMEC continues to recommend and endorse the following “DCSMEC Members Only” plans for benefits effective January 1, 2016.
SOLSTICE DENTAL/VISION has provided benefits to DCSMEC Union Members since 2003 with more savings and benefits compared to the District Plan. Solstice has enhanced the 2016 dental benefits with only a 3% rate increase. There is no rate increase to the Vision Plan and these rates are still competitive or better than the District plans while the benefits are simply better. If you don’t believe it, go on the DCSMEC web site (DCSMEC.org) and compare.
FAMILY LIFE continues (since 2010) to offer an excellent Hospital Indemnity plan to DCSMEC Members. The plan expanded it coverage last year and acts like a Gap Plan to help defer the increases in deductions for hospital confinements as well as out of pocket cost for “both in or out-patient surgeries.” Check out their rates and coverages on our web site.
Please take the time to compare and review these plans for savings and/or increased benefits that are available to DCSMEC Union Members “Only.” UNION MEMBERSHIP MATTERS
