Dear OPEIU Local 6 Members,

We want to take this opportunity to remind you that the OPEIU Local 6 and Massachusetts Trial Court Health & Welfare Fund open enrollment is from October 15, 2018 through November 30, 2018.

During open enrollment, you can change your dental-plan option or make changes within your dental plan. Delta Dental provides two options. Option 1 (Delta Dental PPO Plus Premier) does not cover orthodontic work. Option 2 (Delta Dental PPO Plus Premier with orthodontic coverage) covers orthodontic work.

If your dentist does not participate in your plan-option, you will pay higher out-of-pocket costs. Therefore, make sure that your dentist is participating in your plan-option, and if not, you will need to select the correct plan or change dentists.

To see if your dentist is participating in either or both plan-options visit or call (800) 872-0500.

During open enrollment you can also make other changes to your plan as a result of marriage, divorce, or death; giving birth to, or adopting a child; or other qualifying events. If you have any questions about this, please see your payroll clerk or call the OPEIU Local 6 Trust Fund Office.

Enrollment forms are also available on the union’s website at

These enrollment forms can be used for any changes you wish to make to your plan or to change your plan-option. To make any changes, complete the enrollment form and include any corresponding documents—such as a birth or marriage certificate or a divorce decree. In addition to your signature, your employer needs to sign the form.

Return the completed form and accompanying documents to your payroll clerk who will forward them to the OPEIU Local 6 Trust Fund Office.

The deadline for submitting completed forms to your payroll clerk is November 30, 2018.

If you are not making any changes to your plan, no action is necessary.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the OPEIU Local 6 Trust Fund Office at (781) 843-3820 or (800) 882-1462.

Please free to share this information with your coworkers.
