Harrison Association of Teachers
Full-time teachers are eligible for health insurance benefits from SWSCHP (State-Wide Schools Cooperative Health Plan). SWCHP represents a consortium of school districts and provides a PPO plan that includes comprehensive coverage through network health care providers.
The biweekly, pre-tax contribution toward health insurance by eligible unit members for 2017-18 is as follows:
Existing full-time employees may initiate health insurance coverage or change health plans during the annual open enrollment period. The open enrollment period is the month of November for coverage commencing January 1st of the following calendar year. In order to enroll in a two-person or family plan, employees must provide copies of a marriage license and birth certificate of any children. If any children to be covered are 19 or older, employees will also need to provide a full-time student verification form from the college or university they are attending.
Contact Barbara Teevan in the Office of Human Resources for more information, including the necessary forms, to enroll in health insurance.
Health Benefit Waiver
Full-time teachers who wish to waive health insurance provided by the District because they are covered through another insurance provider are eligible to receive a rebate equivalent to 50% of the amount the District would have paid toward health insurance coverage on their behalf.
