    Health Insurance Information for July 1, 2020                                               

    The District insurance rates are increasing in 2020 at an overall rate increase of 5.3%.  Note this is an increase to the overall rate and not the specific increase you will see in your monthly cost. Our claims/costs have continued to increase this year.  As a result, of our continued increasing costs and in an effort to help mitigate future increases, the Insurance Committee recommended plan changes to all health plans. The bargaining units and the Board approved the health plan changes and an increase to the health rates.

    How to Make Open Enrollment Elections: SmartBen, the District's online benefits system  
    SmartBen is a secure site at https://isd622.smartben.net and is used for New Hire Enrollment, Life Event Changes and Open Enrollment elections.  Please see the instructions below to assist you in completing enrollment.  It is also a resource for insurance plan summaries, information, and forms for all benefit plans such as the Vision Service Plan (VSP), Delta Dental, Life Insurance and more.   After you log into SmartBen, go to Plans at the top of the page.  Click here for screenshots and step-by-step instructions.
    Note: If you are adding dependents to the benefit plans, you will need to provide documentation verifying their relationship to you. For example, if you are adding a spouse, you will need to provide a copy of your marriage certificate.  If you are adding a dependent, you will need to provide documentation such as a birth certificate, adoption record, child support order etc.  For instructions for uploading the documentation to SmartBen click here.
