I currently opt out, but if a health care plan is free for its members, I would be willing to switch back to a fully covered plan. I am however, not a fan of Kaiser and with that said, should we choose one of the other plans other than Kaiser, would the districts contribution of what ever they are going to provide towards the free Kaiser/Anthem-Blue Shield go towards that insurance plan and I would only be responsible for the difference?
Yes. If you chose a plan other than Kaiser that was more expensive than the District contribution towards the Kaiser plan, you would be responsible to pay the difference. The Negotiations Team is working to minimize this out-of-pocket cost. It will be less in comparison to the current out-of-pocket costs for the CalPERS plans.
