    Life Insurance: 
    The school district provides $10,000 in coverage for each eligible employee. Through the Cooperating School Districts Group Insurance Trust, eligible employees may purchase up to five times their current salary in additional life insurance from Cigna. When requesting over two times coverage, employees will be required to complete an evidence of insurability form. Cost is based on the employee's age and the amount of insurance purchased. Eligible employees have the option of purchasing life insurance coverage for their dependents. The cost of coverage for a spouse is $1.92 per month for each $10,000 in coverage, up to $50,000. The cost of coverage for eligible children is $.58 per month for $5,000 in coverage, or $1.16 for $10,000. This amount covers all eligible children. For more information contact the Benefits Office at the above number.

    Other Benefits:

    HIPAA-The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability act of 1996
    Requires self-funded and fully insured group health plans to reduce any pre-existing condition (ex, heart trouble, high blood pressure) limitation periods by days of prior creditable coverage. If coverage has been continuous for the last 12 months (and no break in coverage over 63 days) there will be no pre-existing condition limitation. Your former insurance carrier (ex. if you leave WGSD, United HealthCare will be the issuer) will issue the HIPAA letter to you. It is important to keep this letter with your other important papers. 

    COBRA Coverage
    Under Federal law, if your group health benefits end due to a "qualifying event", you may elect to continue your coverage under the plan. A qualifying event is any of the following:

    1. Termination of the employee's employment or reduction of hours worked which renders the employee ineligible for coverage
    2. death of the employee
    3. divorce or legal separation
    4. for a spouse and eligible dependents, loss of coverage due to the employee becoming eligible for Medicare, or
    5. for a dependent child, ceasing to qualify as a dependent under the plan

    This coverage can be purchased through the District plan for a period of 18 months and/or 36 months depending upon the qualifying event. 

    Once the business office is notified of a termination, a COBRA informational/application/letter is sent by "Certified" mail to your residence. The COBRA premiums are the same as the current group insurance rate plus an additional administrative fee, and are quoted in the Cobra mailing. Medical and/or Dental can be continued. COBRA premiums are due from the date of the qualifying event.
