1619 - GROUP HEALTH PLANS

The Board of Education shall have discretion to establish and maintain group health plans for the benefit of eligible employees. The definition of group health plans as used in this policy may include, but is not limited to, major medical, prescription drug, dental and/or vision plans. These group health plans may provide certain health benefit plans to employees as permitted by law.

The Board has elected to provide minimum value health coverage for some or all of its eligible employees. The terms and conditions of the health coverage are set forth in the appropriate plan documents.

Eligible employees who have coverage through the employer of a working spouse may receive additional compensation if they waive the District’s medical coverage. Eligible employees who waive the medical coverage will be paid based on the number of employees opting out as follows:

 

For 0 - 11 employees: $2,400

 

For 12 – 16 employees: $3,000

 

For 17 or more employees: $3,600

Compensation will be paid monthly or the first pay in June with the understanding that this additional compensation is subject to FICA and Federal, State and local income tax. To receive this compensation, the eligible employee must provide the District with proof of medical coverage provided by the spouse’s employer.
