Upcoming Health Fair and Flu Shot Clinic
Many thanks to the SAISD Employee Benefits Committee, to which the Alliance names the teacher, paraprofessional, and classified members, for securing no premium increase to employees last school year and a reduction in premiums on all plans for this school year with no loss in benefits! The overall reduction in premium of 1.45% will result in $566,123 combined savings to the district and employees. The base district contribution per employee per month is $373.96. SAISD is one of only four area school districts to provide an option for which they pay the full cost for the employee-only coverage. Over the last couple of years, the Alliance and the SAISD Employee Benefits Committee have focused on wellness and this has produced a positive claims ratio, which has had a positive impact on premiums.
The open enrollment period, the time during which you can add, delete, or change coverage, began on August 27 and ends on Sept. 16 at 11:59PM. All employees should have received an enrollment packet before August 27 with a calendar listing dates of Open Enrollment Computer Lab sessions at which representatives from the SAISD Employee Benefits Dept. and Humana will be available to answer benefit questions and assist employees in making informed decisions regarding their insurance.
