There is no guarantee your legal matter is covered by the Legal Services Plan. The Plan Administrator may later determine your legal matter is not a covered benefit even if your selected panel attorney/accountant advised you that your legal matter is covered. The Plan Administrator is responsible for the final determination of whether your legal matter is covered based on the terms and conditions of the Legal Services Plan.

In rare instances, your selected panel attorney/accountant may later determine that your legal matter exceeds the terms, conditions, scope, or intent for which the Plan provides benefits to its eligible members. You may then choose to continue with counsel by the participating panel attorney/accountant, or select an attorney/accountant outside the Plan. In either case, you will be responsible for making further payment arrangements with your attorney/accountant. The Legal Services Plan will not responsible for any benefit payments thereafter, and the participating panel professional or outside professional may charge you their regular billable rates.

If you have questions concerning the Legal Services Plan, please refer to your Legal Services Plan and Summary Plan Description or call the Plan Director at (800) 604-0999.
