The Board of Trustees of the Lima Area Local 776 Health Plan has taken several important steps to address the recent COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on Local 776 members.


This is a summary of the current actions taken on your behalf. For continued updates, please check the Union's social media accounts.


  • Effective immediately, the waiting week for illness-related short-term disability is waived. 

  • If you are ill and sent home from a job, a certification from your employer will be accepted instead of the required doctor certification for the first two weeks.  This change will allow you to self-quarantine to see if COVID-19 symptoms develop.  You still need a doctor’s certification after the first two weeks.

  • If you or your family need a COVID-19 test, the Plan will pay for the test and the office, urgent care, or emergency room visit to get it with no deductible or co-pay.
