About Us

The Operating Engineers Local 49 Health and Welfare Fund is a self-funded, multiemployer health plan with approximately 36,000 participants.

Since the Fund’s inception in December 1967, it has been governed by a Board of Trustees, which is made up of both Labor and Management. The Trustees are committed to providing you and your family with the tools, information, and programs you need to take control of your health.

We encourage you to engage with these programs and thoughtfully consider what you gain from each of them. All of these programs are provided as part of the health plan offering and are available at no cost to you and your covered dependents.

The Trustees hire Wilson-McShane Corporation to perform many of the functions associated with administration of the Fund. If you have questions regarding employer contributions, disability, Plan benefits, or claims payments, contact Wilson-McShane Corporation at the contact information below.
