MCSD Employees… Welcome to Open Enrollment for 2021-22.

Please watch the video below to learn more about benefits for employees working 30+ hours!

Murray City School District Open Enrollment Guide 2021-2022

There are no changes to benefits for the 2021-22 SY.

Note: The District contributes to a Health Savings account for each classified and administrative plan participant. Certified employees negotiated to reduce the employee premium for the HealthSave plan by eliminating the District H.S.A contribution.

This year the district received a 3.6% compensation increase. Employees will pay for the increase in insurance premiums. The negotiations committees elected to use the available funds for salaries.  Please refer to the insurance rate schedules below.

If you continue with the same plan, do nothing and you will remain enrolled. To change your plan, complete the enrollment form below. If you do not want health coverage, complete the Waiver section of the Select Health Enrollment form below. If you are a new employee the enrolmment form is mandatory.  You must either enroll in or waive your benefits.

Additional publications/information:

With the HealthSave plan, the district will continue contributing to the classified employee’s accounts and Administrator’s accounts.

You may choose to contribute your own money to your H.S.A. as well.  The maximum contribution amounts for 2021 are:  Single $3,600 and Family $7,200 (combined with money the district contributes on your behalf. Example:  If you are single and the district contributes $1,000, you may contribute $2,600.) Those over 55 may elect to save an additional $1,000 per year.
