MedExpert Adds Value
to Health Benefits

MedExpert is a Union negotiated benefit that provides quick answers to your health questions and explains your treatment options. It is available free of charge to all members of Local 8, as well as their spouses, children and parents.

MedExpert is like having your own personal doctor whom you can call whenever you have a question. MedExpert uses a vast and growing computer database of medical conditions and treatments. When necessary, MedExpert contacts the world?s leading experts to consult on individual cases.

MedExpert's medical coordinators and doctors use a groundbreaking artificial intelligence system that gives you unlimited medical and pharmaceutical information on any medical condition.

MedExpert also can provide help with using your health plan - scheduling appointments, speeding up physician wait lists, setting up referrals to local experts in your plan and helping ensure that you are aware of your best options.

I have spoken to many members of UFCW 8 who have received true value through this trailblazing service.

MedExpert is helping UFCW members in California become much more effective and efficient in using their benefits.

Thanks to MedExpert and other innovations, our health benefits trust fund has made substantial savings in recent years. This means the fund is better able to pay for the medical benefits your family wants and needs.

If you have a question about a medical condition or treatment, you can call MedExpert at (800) 999-1999, 7 a.m.-7 p.m., Monday through Friday, or email
