What’s in our Kroger Prescription Plans Proposal?

Lake Charles

October 9th, 2021

Kroger wants to provide secure and affordable health care benefits for the life of your contract. Kroger presented a Last, Best, and Final Offer to Local 455 on September 17, which included health care being provided through a company-administered plan. Our health care offer includes the following Kroger Prescription Plans plan design for all Lake Charles, Sulphur, and Alexandria clerks hired before January 1, 2022, and all Lake Charles and Sulphur meat clerks hired before January 1, 2022.

While we know change can be difficult, we also believe that our health care proposal will bring stability, security, and predictability to your benefits now and in the future, just as it has done for our Houston associates.

Kroger is committed to working with our associates — like we have done with our Houston associates — to get the most out of their health care and prescription plan benefits. We are committed to working with you to find the best cost and best options for you. In order to make the transition to this prescription plan more predictable, we encourage associates to review the available formulary list and price check tool, and then, if applicable, to talk to your doctor about switching to lower-cost generic or preferred brand prescriptions.

The complete health care plan design is available for your review is available here.
