Preface
Th is bulletin describes the principal features of 100 se­
lected health and insurance plans in effect in e a rly 1958. It
is a revision of the Digest of One Hundred Selected Health and
Insurance Plans Under Collective B argaining, 1954 (B u ll. 1180),
published in 1955, and a companion to the Digest of One Hundred
Selected Pension Plans Under Collective Bargaining, W inter
1957-58 (B u ll. 1232), published in 1958.
Th is digest includes 93 of the 100 plans sum m arized
in Bulletin 1180.
The seven other plans are identified by an
asterisk following the name of the em ployer party to the plan.
The plans in this digest are not presented as typical
o r m odel plans, nor as a representative sample of all plans
under collective bargaining. Th e y were selected because they
covered large numbers of w orkers in m a jo r industries, or be­
cause they illustrated different approaches to health and in su r­
ance coverage, o r because of their interest to the general public
evidenced in inquiries received by the Bureau.
The number
of w orkers covered by the plans ranged fro m about one thousand
to several hundred thousand.

Surgical and Medical
Up to maximum schedule allowance accepted as full payment
in annual income is under . . - . — Except where indicated, annual income under this provision refers to total income of persons covered.
Maximum schedule allowance refers to the surgical schedule
allowance for the most costly single operation; often used to identify
the type of schedule; i. e. , a $200, $250, or $300 schedule.
Medical care allowances.— Generally, these benefits are
not payable for treatment received in connection with or following an
operation. However, under some plans providing for in-hospital medi­
cal benefits, the maximum amount of medical benefits payable is de­
termined according to a specified formula if an operation is performed
during the period, medical care allowances are otherwise payable.
Wherever such a formula is included in the plan, the details are set
forth in a footnote.
Maternity Provisions
Hospital and medical care benefits described in this section
are those available for normal delivery cases.
Usually, higher al­
lowances or benefits are provided in those cases where obstetrical
complications arise; these benefits are not described in this report.
Benefits available to newly insured. — This refers to the ad­
ditional period of coverage under the plan, if any, required of the
employee and/or dependent before maternity benefits are available.
Other Benefits
This section includes those benefits provided under the plan
and not described elsewhere in the digest. Out-of-hospital allowances
for anesthesia, X -ra y, electrocardiograms, etc. , where provided,
are included in this section. Where such benefits are provided only
during hospital confinement, they are considered part of the "extra
allowance or services" under the hospitalization section.
Extension of Benefits
Benefits made available to retired employees and their de­
pendents under the program are covered in this section. Benefits paid




for entirely by the employee are included only if available on a group
rate basis. Coverage available to retired workers and/or their de­
pendents through conversion to individual premium rate policies are
not included in this report.
Usually, the employee must be retired by the company or be
retired under the provisions of a retirement program in order to be
eligible for plan benefits. Generally, such retirement is based on age
and/or service requirements.
When qualifications for coverage are
indicated in the plan, these are noted in the appropriate benefit columns.
Financing
Company only. — This term is used when the company pays the
full cost of all benefits for the covered group or when the only payment
the employee makes is that required by State temporary disability
statutes. When the latter is the case, this is indicated by a footnote.
If the basic benefits are company financed, but additional benefits are
available on a contributory basis or at the employee’ s sole cost, the
method of financing has been designated as "company only" with a foot­
note explaining this option.
If benefits for the retired worker or the retired worker and
his dependents are paid for from a fund to which only the company
contributes, these benefits are noted as financed by "company only"
with an accompanying footnote.
Jointly. — Benefits for the covered group are considered
"jointly" financed even if the employer or employee pays part of the
cost of only one of the benefits provided and the other benefits are
financed solely by the employer or employee. If benefits for the re­
tired worker of the retired worker and his dependents are financed by
contributions of the active employee and the company, the benefits are
considered "jointly" financed.
Amounts of contribution. — Information is provided only to the
extent that details are available in the literature describing the plan.
No attempt was made to determine the actual amount of contribution or
cost in those cases where the plan simply stated that the company or
employee paid the "full cost" or "balance of c o s t."
