In an effort to minimize the occurrence of H1N1 flu among Railroad Plan participants and their dependents, the Railroad Employees National Health and Welfare Plan and the National Railway Carriers and their healthcare providers (Aetna, Highmark as well as the Railroad Employees National Early Retirement Major Medical Benefit Plan and its medical vendor United Healthcare), will cover the administration of the H1N1 vaccine through the end of December, 2009 for covered Plan participants and dependents, with no co-pays, deductibles or coinsurance payments. This also includes Group Health Insurance Plans GA-23111 (For Former Railroad Employees and their Dependents).
A decision as to whether or not this special coverage handling will be extended into 2010 will be made by the end of the year.
