Health & Welfare Benefits

Scotts Valley Unified School District offers a generous and comprehensive benefits package to eligible employees and their eligible dependents. There is a choice of five medical plan options, dental and vision coverage, employee assistance program, district-paid employee basic life insurance of $100,000.00, voluntary employee life insurance, voluntary dependent life insurance and voluntary accidental death and dismemberment coverage.

The district pays the base premium costs of the medical “high” HMO plan, defined as the actual premium costs as of June 30 of the previous year, and both the District and the employees will each contribute one-half of the dollar amount of the premium costs increase over the prior year’s premium costs.  Currently the district pays the full cost of the dental and vision plans selected for these employees and their eligible dependents.  The district also pays the cost of basic life insurance for eligible employees.

The amount that an employee may be required to pay for coverage may change annually. These amounts are determined by the increase in premium and announced during the Open Enrollment period held in May. Any required employee contribution is made through automatic payroll deduction on a ten-month basis, September through June.

Eligible employees may also choose to participate in a Health Care and/or Dependent Day Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA).
