Bricklayers Insurance and Welfare Fund

If you will soon be eligible for MEDICARE, be advised that you will no longer be covered by the Bricklayers Insurance and Welfare Plan once you become eligible for Medicare. Medicare Part A will be your hospital provider; Medicare Part B will cover your doctors, X-rays and Lab work, and Medicare Part D will cover your prescription drugs. (For those members who earned Retiree Coverage you will still have supplemental coverage with the Bricklayers Insurance and Welfare Plan.)
