The annual report has been filed with the Employee Benefits Security Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, as required under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).
The plan has contracts with Delta Dental Of Massachusetts, Health Net, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Inc., and Standard Insurance Company to pay health, dental, life insurance, long-term disability, prescription drug, and accidental death & dismemberment claims incurred under the terms of the plan. The total premiums paid for the plan year ending December 31, 2014 were $8,066,047.
Because they are so called "experience-rated" contracts, the premium costs are affected by, among other things, the number and size of claims. Of the total insurance premiums paid for the plan year ending December 31, 2014, the premiums paid under such "experience-rated" contracts were $871,907 and the total of all benefit claims paid under these contracts during the plan year was $775,195.
