The MEBA Plans are here for you during the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) crisis. While you are used to hearing a live voice answering the phone, there is an auto attendant answering the calls now. This is to keep our staff safe so we can continue to support the membership. Calls and emails are being routed to the appropriate staff to handle. We are still processing pension applications, medical claims and vacation claims. You may experience a minor delay but everything is being handled. Please bear with us as we continue to support you. Thanks for keeping our ships sailing! Please stay safe.
In accordance with the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, the MEBA Medical & Benefits Plan will provide coverage for COVID-19 diagnostic testing without imposing any cost sharing requirements (such as copays, coinsurance, or copays) effective immediately.
In order to have your Pre-Employment drug test covered by the plan, you are required to have worked in Covered Employment for at least 60 days in the six-month period immediately preceding your drug test; and such Covered Employment must be with Employers that participate in the Federal Drug Testing Program.
New Entrants in the Plan, or employees who have not previously participated in the plan, will become eligible after completing 30 days of Covered Employment within any period of six consecutive calendar months.
You would need to complete a Change of Address Form, which can be found under Forms & Documents, Member Services Forms. We cannot take address changes over the phone; the form must be submitted in writing, signed and dated by the member.
