Yes. Regular employees have the option to waive coverage.
To opt-out or waive coverage, you must complete the Enrollment/Change form as if you are enrolling (you and your eligible dependents) into the plan, select a medical plan and complete Section 5 “Declination of Coverage”. Sign your selections and send your completed Enrollment/Change Form to the Trust Fund Office along with the supporting documentation for the enrollment of your dependents.
If you opt out of coverage under the Fund, you may not re-enroll until you qualify for the twelve month rolling enrollment change unless you have a change of status event.
