I select the lowest cost health insurance so that I receive the additional couple hundred dollars to help me pay my bills. That amount is very critical for me to meet my monthly bills and would be devastating if that is taken away. What will happen to single party health plan payer who currently receives a monetary payout for the difference between the district stipend and the cost of the health insurance?
Per the mutually agreed to criteria, our single payer members need to be kept whole. There is no risk of loosing the current cash back by switching to SISC. The Negotiations Team met with the District on 4/15/19 to discuss the effects of various options on single party payers. Note, currently 2 plans offered by CalPERS exceed the districts contribution when including the dental and vision costs. Cost projections over the next few years show this number increasing.
