Llame Ahora para Inscribirse En el Programa para Matrimonios Saludables para las Parejas de 1199SEIU El programa Apoyo a Matrimonios Saludables (Supporting Healthy Marriage) del año pasado para las parejas de 1199SEIU llevado a cabo en el Montefiore Medical Center tuvo tanto éxito que se va a volver a realizar.

Emergency rooms are for real medical emergencies, and we should never go to the ER for non-emergency care. ERs are crowded, costly and mean long waits when our condition isn’t critical, because we will get taken care of last. So, when we need non-emergency medical attention and can’t get ahold of our doctor, our Benefit Fund covers many other ways to get the immediate care we need.

El programa Apoyo a Matrimonios Saludables consta de 10 semanas de talleres entretenidos e interactivos, donde las parejas aprenden habilidades de comunicación simples y formas efectivas de manejar el conflicto y el estrés. Si usted es seleccionado, verá videos, participará en discusiones en grupo y practicará las nuevas habilidades de comunicación que desarrollará a lo largo del trayecto. También tendrá la oportunidad de trabajar con un Coordinador de Apoyo a la Familia, que lo ayudará a aprender a afrontar las tensiones cotidianas de la familia como las finanzas, el empleo y la vivienda.

Además de aprender todo tipo de valiosos consejos y técnicas sobre relaciones, le servirán una cena y le darán la oportunidad de que le paguen hasta $1,000 en dinero en efectivo para emergencias, tarjetas de regalo y MetroCards si asiste a cada sesión del taller. Las investigaciones han demostrado que las personas que tienen un matrimonio sano viven más tiempo, se enferman menos, y ganan y ahorran más dinero. Y los hijos de estos matrimonios presentan menos problemas de comportamiento y tienen mejor rendimiento en la escuela. ¡El cupo es limitado y las sesiones comienzan pronto, así que llame de inmediato si está interesado! Llame al Montefiore Medical Center al (718) 401-5050 y dígale a la recepcionista que está interesado en el programa Apoyo a Matrimonios Saludables (Supporting Healthy Marriage) para las parejas de 1199SEIU, y que se enteró acerca de este programa en este boletín.

When Your Doctor Isn’t Available and You Need Care Now

Use a Health Coach if you or anyone in your family suffers from symptoms related to a chronic condition, such as asthma, diabetes or high blood pressure. A Health Coach is available by phone at (866) 935-1199 to help you better manage the condition. If you or your family is not working with a coach already, call today. Or maybe you’re feeling sick, with flu symptoms, a fever or allergies. Then you can call our 1199SEIU Nurse Helpline at (866) 935-1199 for around-the-clock support over the phone, seven days a week, from nurses who can answer many of your healthcare questions.

Urgent Care Centers and Walk-In Health Centers are also two choices we have where we can just walk in and receive care without an appointment. These facilities in our network offer extended hours with high-quality service, which is especially important when you can’t get in to see your doctor or need care after hours. These centers treat a wide range of medical problems – from the flu, sore throats, allergic reactions, minor injuries and burns – to care for chronic conditions like asthma. And, of course we have access to the ER for emergency care when we need it. But we must reserve ERs for true medical emergencies only. Use the many other care choices our Benefit Fund offers. In addition to getting the best care, you’ll be protecting your benefits into the future. For more information or to find an Urgent Care Center or Walk-In Health Center near you, call Member Services at (646) 473-9200, or visit our website at www.1199SEIUBenefits.org.

Our Urgent Care Network Keeps Growing Our Benefit Fund is dedicated to getting you the care you need, when you need it. So we give you access to Urgent Care and Walk-In Health Centers that are convenient to you. Your choices include the many Beth Israel Medical Center facilities (formerly known as DOCS) throughout Manhattan and Westchester. In fact, at Beth Israel Medical Center’s Chelsea location, you can now get care 24 hours a day, whenever you need it. You can also visit the new Montefiore Urgent Care Center located at the Bronx East Montefiore Medical Group practice at 2300 Westchester Avenue, in the Bronx. The Center is open seven days a week – Monday through Friday from 3:00 pm to 10:00 pm, and Saturday, Sunday and most holidays from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

For a full list of Urgent Care Centers, visit www.1199SEIUBenefits.org. We’re always working to keep building our network. So, if there’s an Urgent Care center in your neighborhood that you’d like to join our network, call the Benefit Fund at (646) 473-9200 and let us know, and we’ll reach out to them.
