How to Enroll

To have benefits, you must enroll yourself and your eligible dependents when you become eligible.

New Employees

  • Complete the Enrollment Application.
  • Submit the completed application to your employer as soon as possible after you begin employment.

Newly Acquired Dependents

(Active Employee Plan participants)

  • Active Employee Plan participants may enroll newly acquired dependents at any time as your family changes, for example, through birth, adoption or marriage. (Retirees may not add dependents after enrollment in a Retiree Plan.)
  • Be sure to enroll by the deadline (generally 30 days from the date of the event).


Please contact the Trust Administrative Office to enroll.

When You are Enrolled

  • For Active Employees, monthly contributions will be deducted from your paycheck. (Retirees pay monthly.)
  • You’ll receive a Health Plan ID card within 30 days.
  • Create an account on the Plan carriers’ websites (Regence, Express Scripts, etc.) to find an in-network provider, view your benefit coverage and see your claim history. (Tip: Download the carrier's app for online access to your ID card and coverage information.)
  • Create an account with the Administrative Office on Northwest Administrator’s website to verify you and your dependents are enrolled.
  • Be sure to update your contact information with the Trust whenever you have changes to your mailing address, phone number or email address.
