Be on the lookout for information about some new things on the horizon, like a monthly cooking class, fitness classes held on campuses after school, an all district Health Fair in the fall!
Did You Know???
Our district is self Insured.... what does that mean? In practical terms, self-insured employers pay for each out of pocket claim as they are incurred instead of paying a fixed premium to an insurance carrier, which is known as a fully-insured plan. The cost of the services employees choose directly impact the price that our district pays.
By choosing health care providers who charge prices which are in-line with other providers who offer similar services will save our plan money.... how do you know how much your provider charges? By logging into your First Choice Member account and clicking on Cost and Quality, you can use the tools to find doctors in our are and see how the price they charge compares to each other.
As a self insured entity, our district pays for expenditures such as postage for explanation of benefit mailings. From 7/1/15-12/31/15 our district spent $5,143 on postage. If we keep on track, that's over $10,000 on postage for 1 year.... how can you help reduce this cost?GO GREEN!
