Transparency in Coverage

Federal Transparency in Coverage regulations require that as of July 1, 2022 group health plans must post machine readable files containing (1) negotiated in-network rates and (2) out-of-network billed charges and allowed amounts.

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.

Open Enrollment

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

The ONLY way to update your Plan address is for the TBT participant to fill out and sign the Plan’s official Change of Address form and return it to the TBT Plan Administration Office.

SEND the signed form in one of these ways:
E-mail to enroll@lipmantpa.com
Fax to TBT at (510) 795-9237, or
Mail or bring to the TBT Plan Administration Office.

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.
