EMI Health administers our Dental Options. You can select from four different Dental Options.
- Value Plan: This is a discount dental plan and is not a normal insurance plan. It provides a discount on dental services when you use an in-network dentist but you will be responsible to pay the full cost of the services. By way of analogy, it is like having a coupon for dental services.
- Advantage Copay Plan: This is the most popular dental plan the District offers. It has a good balance between coverage and cost. There is a copay associated with every dental service. See the copay schedule posted below.
- Choice PPO Plan: This preferred provider dental option has an in-network and out-of-network option. You will receive preferential pricing if you utilize the Advantage provider network. If you go out of network you will pay a larger portion of the dental expense. This dental plan has a one year waiting period for major dental.
- Choice Indemnity Classic Plan: This plan is very similar to the Choice PPO plan but provides a higher out-of-pocket maximum. This plan also has a one year waiting period for major dental.

Discovery Benefits provides administration on many of the ancillary benefits offered by the District. They have prepared the following videos to help explain their services. These benefits include the following:

Funds contributed to an HSA are portable and are never forfeited. Please see the HSA info pages below for more information on limits and an explanation on the District’s HSA contributions.
- FSA (Flexible Spending Account): While similar to the HSA, there are some notable differences. The full election amount is available one the first day of the benefit year. The election limit is lower than the HSA and funds must be used during the plan year and grace period or they will be forfeited. Claims must be substantiated with receipts.
- Dependent Care FSA: This option is a daycare reimbursement account. You can elect this plan if you have children younger than 13 that are in daycare so that you can work.
- LFSA (Limited FSA): This plan is a supplement to an HSA. This plan operates like a regular FSA but is limited to Dental and Vision expenses only. It is intended for those who want to maximize their HSA savings. The contribution limit has been set to $1,000.

There are three supplemental group policies available through Aflac. Aflac functions differently from other insurance providers in that they don’t pay the service provider in the event there is a claim; instead they make payment to the policy holder directly and the holder uses the funds as they see fit.
The plans available through Aflac are as follows:
- Accident Insurance: This accident policy will make payment should you sustain injuries that impact your life or the life of your covered family members. Hospital admissions, broken bones and and dislocations are covered, not just death or dismemberment.
- Critical Illness: This policy covers major illnesses like cancers, heart attacks or strokes.
- Hospital Indemnity: This benefit applies to situations that require a hospital admission or confinement.
You are encouraged to review the detailed information sheets below for more information. If you have questions you are encouraged to contact Lee Harmer, the District’s Aflac representative.
