Benefits & Wellness
The district offers a range of choices for each employee. There are seven plans to choose from, each with varying copays and monthly premiums: two Regence BlueShield plans, three Premera Blue Cross plans and two Group Health plans are all available for your selection. While the renewal rates and open enrollment take effect November 1st, the deductible, out-of-pocket maximums and benefit limits all run on a calendar year basis.
Note: When changing plans or carriers during open enrollment deductible and coinsurance maximums must be satisfied under the new plan limits. Deductibles, coinsurance maximums and benefits all run on a calendar year. When moving between plans with the same carrier you will only have to satisfy the difference in benefits between November 1st and December 31st.
If you move from one carrier to another, you will be required to satisfy a new deductible and coinsurance maximum. Premera Blue Cross will “roll over” deductibles met in November and December to apply to your 2016 deductible requirement.

Delta Dental of Washington allows you to use any licensed dentist and pays a percentage of charges for preventive care, basic care, major care and orthodontia.
