Dear Member,
 
I am thrilled to announce that as of this morning, the trustees from both the SAG-Producers Health Plan and the AFTRA Health Fund have voted to merge the two plans and, once and for all, end the problem of split earnings. This agreement will be a great relief to our members and their families, especially those who have found it increasingly difficult to qualify for healthcare coverage as their earnings were split between the two plans.
