MEDICAL BENEFITS - BCBS of Kansas City
There are 5 medical plans to choose from through Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Kansas City. Two high deductible plans, two traditional PPO plans and one HMO.
DENTAL BENEFITS - Delta Dental
Dental coverage is with Delta Dental of Kansas. A traditional fee-for-service program utilizing Kansas' largest dentist network with approximately 80% of the practicing dentists in Kansas. Patients who sign up for DeltaPremier have the freedom of visiting any dentist they choose; however, if you use a DeltaPremier dentist, the program guarantees you will not pay more than the patient portion specified in your company dental plan. You may provide dental coverage for your spouse/children at your expense.
LIFE INSURANCE BENEFITS - Principal
USD 232 provides eligible employees with a $50,000 group term life policy and $50,000 Accidental Death & Dismemberment policy at no cost. Employees have the option of purchasing voluntary term life insurance for themselves, their spouse and their child(ren), all at the employee's own cost.
SHORT-TERM DISABLITY BENEFITS - UNUM
All eligible employees are automatically covered with short-term disability insurance, 100% paid for by the district, regardless of full-time status. STD covers any off-the-job physician-documented disability which often results in a loss of income. The STD wait period is 30 calendar days or the exhaustion of your sick leave, whichever is greater, after your accident/illness. After the wait period, the benefit pays 65% of base salary, up to a maximum of $1,250 per week, for up to 26 weeks.
FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNT PLAN (FSA) - Flex Made Easy
A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) provides a way for you to designate pre-tax dollars to pay for certain medical and dependent care expenses. This is done through a pre-tax payroll deduction each pay period throughout the year and placed in your FSA account. This account helps pay for medical, vision and dental expenses.
