ALERT! Railroad health plan seeks dependent Social Security numbers

Missing information could lead to loss of coverage

RAILROAD MEMBER DEPENDENTS who do not have Social Security numbers (SSNs) and/or Medicare health insurance claim numbers (HICNs) on file with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services risk losing their coverage under the Railroad Employees National Health and Welfare Plan.

In June of 2010, United Healthcare began sending notices to railroad workers informing them about deadlines for reporting missing dependent information. The first deadline was July 31, 2010 for dependents who were added to the plan between January 1, 2009, and May 31, 2010. The second deadline was January 31, 2011 for dependents added to the plan before January 1, 2009.

Danny Hamilton, Director of Railroad Division Services, said any member who is not sure if the appropriate dependent information is on file should immediately contact Railroad Enrollment Services at 1-800-753-2692.
