Health Benefits

MEDICAL BENEFITS

As a District employee, you are eligible for the following health benefits:

  • Medical plans are available through Aetna.
  • Prescription coverage is available through Benecard Services.
  • Dental through Delta Dental* (click here to find out your plan) 
  • Vision through Aetna*

*Dental and Vision plans are offered free of charge to you and your dependents, even if you waive coverage for medical and prescription coverage.

You may only make changes to your Medical benefits during the annual Open Enrollment period (October 23, 2017 - November 22, 2017) or if you have a qualifying life change.

FLEXIBLE SPENDING

A Flexible Spending Account is a special account you put money into each year which can be used to pay for eligible medical, dependent care or transportation expenses with pre-tax dollars. This means you do not pay taxes on the money in your Flexible Spending Account. Funds do not roll over from year to year – if you don’t use it – you lose it! To learn more about FSA click here.

Eligible Expenses Through Flexible Spending Account (FSA)

Medical Reimbursement: You are allowed to put aside pre-tax dollars up to a maximum of $2,550 per calendar year to pay for medical expenses that are not reimbursed by your insurance. Funds are preloaded onto a Visa debit card and are available from the first day of the calendar year.

Dependent Care Reimbursement: You may put aside pre-tax dollars up to a maximum of $5,000 per calendar year to pay for eligible day care expenses (must be a licensed day care provider with a Federal Tax ID number to qualify). This benefit accumulates per pay period and you will only have what you have deposited to use at any given time vs. being available on day one of the year.

Transportation and Commuter Expenses: You may put aside pre-tax dollars for parking expenses up to a maximum of $245 per month at a qualified lot or parking meter system. This is also funded per payroll period like the Dependent Care Reimbursement.

To set up a Flexible Spending Account, print and complete the Flexible Compensation Enrollment Form and return to DTLR during our Office Hours, M-F 3-5 p.m
