Here are the Select Health changes for 09/01/2022:
- THE TRADITIONAL MED + PLAN IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. IF YOU ARE CURRENTLY ON THE MED + PLAN YOU MUST ENROLL IN EITHER THE VALUE PLAN OR THE HEALTHSAVE PLAN. IF YOU DO NOT ENROLL IN AN ACTIVE PLAN YOUR INSURANCE WILL DEFAULT TO THE VALUE PLAN.
If you would like to keep the Med + network, you will need to enroll in the Healthsave plan. We did find that many of the employees enrolled in the traditional Med+ plan were using doctors that accepted both the Med + and Value Networks. You may use this link to check your provider to see what networks they accept.
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.
If you are not on the Med + traditional plan, and wish to continue with the same plan, you do not need to do anything.
If you wish 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 filling out the enrollment form is mandatory. You must either enroll in a plan or waive your benefits.
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 2022 are: Single $3,650 and Family $7,300 (combined with money the district contributes on your behalf. Example: If you are single and the district contributes $1,000, you may contribute $2,650.) Those over 55 may elect to save an additional $1,000 per year. This rate will increase in January to Single $3,850 and Family $7,750.

All benefits-eligible employees are offered a group life benefit of $50,000 for the employee and $2,000 for the employee’s dependents, up to age 26. Additionally, the district provides an LTD benefit for the employee.
Dental coverage for FY22-23 will continue through EMI Health. There was no increase in premiums. The rates are listed on the insurance rate charts.
Note: Dental enrollment must be kept for the full contract year as it is a voluntary plan. Changes can only be made during Open Enrollment. Current enrollment will continue if unchanged. If you want to drop dental for FY22-23, you must submit the enrollment form, leaving the boxes for dental coverage unchecked.
Newly-hired employees are urged to mark the Life Insurance and LTD boxes on the form – even if NOT enrolling in dental coverage. The life and LTD insurance is covered in full by the Murray School District for all employees that work 30+ hours per week.
