WECA Commercial Inside Wireman apprentices can choose to add dependents to his/her health benefit coverage. If you have arranged to have your dependent(s) covered by your WECA health plan, you must pay $100 to $135* by personal or cashier's check, money order or credit card, or by automatic credit card deduction each month, for this coverage. Cash payment may also be accepted at the front counter of the WECA Sacramento Region Office only.
Payments must be received in the WECA Sacramento Region Office by the 25th of each month prior to the month of coverage. Accounts are considered late on the 26th.
If payment in full is not received by that date, his/her dependent(s) coverage will be retroactively cancelled (back to the date the first invoice became due). The Apprentice will also will be financially responsible for any services used by his/her dependent(s) since the date the first invoice became due.
