Dear Brothers & Sisters,

It has come to my attention that several members have had problems calling our Health Fund. Upon looking for answers, some very important ideas have surfaced. First, when you or your provider/ anyone else calls, you must identify yourself as a #147 member, that assures your call will be directed to the right party. Second, the numbers on the insurance card are confusing. When a provider is trying to find out if you have insurance eligibility they may call Southern Benefit Administrators by mistake because of where the phone number is located. The number under Southern Benefit wording is for Precertification, which brings us to number three. When we were with Cigna, we never had to get precertification, with Anthem we do and Anthem requires providers call them to see if a member has eligibility. Fourth, for questions on benefits, call Southern Benefit Administrators Member Services phone number, which is located above Southern Benefit Administrators wording beside the words Member Services.

I apologize for all the confusion, and we are doing everything possible to stop the “put-on-hold or leaving a call back voice message.” If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me.


Darold S. Kemp,
Business Manager


Sometimes people have their names purged from the voter list by mistake and are not
informed.  Sometimes county clerk’s offices make clerical errors.  If this happens
to you, your ability to vote this year could be compromised.

If you have any doubts, we recommend that you re-register to vote.  For more information,
contact your IUOE local office.
