We have prepared a benefit booklet to help you make your insurance decisions. (Link to the Benefit Guide). We have made an effort to provide you with a considerable amount of choice concerning your benefit options. This Benefit Guide provides a concise overview of the plans the District offers. We suggest that you spend a few minutes becoming familiar with your options.
Before you make a decision on benefits we encourage you to take an inventory of
your medical needs and preferences for yourself and your family. The following are suggestions of things you can do to help you in deciding what benefits are right for you.
- Make a list of all the special health concerns in your family.
- Consider how frequently you and or family require medical attention.
- List your preferred doctors, dentists, clinics and hospitals.
- Estimate what you spend annually on medical expenses.
- Consider how much you can afford to pay for benefits, and how well you manage your finances.
Federal regulations, imposed by the Affordable Care Act (ACA), requires the District to issue a tax form 1095-C to all full time employees for the tax year of 2017. It is projected that the 1095C forms will be issued by January 31, 2018

Life events Include:
- Involuntary loss of coverage
- Enrollment in other coverage
Status changing events only allow you to make changes to your benefits that are necessary to accommodate the change. For instance, adding a baby to coverage following a birth, or dropping coverage on an ex-spouse following a divorce. It doesn’t allow you to change what health plan you are enrolled in or change the carriers you have elected. If you want to change carriers or plans you will need to wait until the next open enrollment window, then the changes will take effect in the following plan year.
You have 30 days (60 days for Divorce) from the status changing event to make the change. Documentation that substantiates the status change, i.e. Birth Certificate, Death Certificate, Divorce Decree, adoption paperwork etc., will be required.
Status changes typically take effect as of the date of the change. For instance, if you have a baby the effective date of the change would be the date of the birth. Be aware that if changes are entered after the 10th of the month it may not be reflected on that month’s payroll deduction and would require and increased deduction in the subsequent month.
Terminated employees can continue coverage through the District if they enroll in COBRA coverage. Employee will be sent a notification once the District Coverage ends. Terminated employees have 63 days to enroll in COBRA coverage. Once enrolled the coverage will be reinstated back to the date coverage was lost. COBRA enrollees will pay the full cost of the monthly insurance premiums plus a 2% administrative fee.
Flexible Spending participants: Please be aware Flex spending cards will be deactivated upon termination with the District. Claims will need to be submitted manually for processing. Only services rendered prior to the date of termination will be eligible for reimbursement. Any unused funds at the end of the plan year will be forfeited. All of this is according to IRS Guidelines.
