Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC) and Uniform Glossary
Under the new health care reform laws, group health plans like TBT must provide active participants with summaries of benefits and coverage.
After your initial choice of medical and dental options, TBT’s Open Enrollment policy allows you to change your medical and/or dental options once every 12 months between January 1 and December 31.
Update Your Plan Address
TBT keeps one address for each participant. If your spouse or other dependents don’t live with you, make sure they know that all TBT mail is sent to your address.
