Reciprocity/Foreign Employment

Reciprocity

One of the advantages of the International Health Fund is "portability". Members may travel to different areas while continuing to earn hours for eligibility. However, when a member travels to a local jurisdiction which does not participate in the Health Fund, then reciprocity becomes important to ensure continued eligibility.

The BAC International Health Fund is signatory to the International Reciprocal Agreement for BAC Health and Welfare Funds, including Exhibit "B" of that agreement, which provides for "money follows the man" reciprocity. Please contact the Fund Office for a list of local funds signatory to the agreement and a form to transfer your hours to the IHF when you work in a local which does not participate in the IHF.

In cases where a fund has merged with the IHF and had a reciprocal agreement with local health funds, it is the policy of the IHF to grant international reciprocity as the successor plan, retroactive to the date the former fund merged with the IHF once the local health fund signs the International Reciprocal Agreement for BAC Health and Welfare Funds.
