Enrollment for New Employees or Special Enrollment Event Changes during the year:
1. All new employee's are required to complete the online enrollment / declination.
2. You will have to complete the online process if you are enrolling in health insurance or if you are declining the district health insurance:
Health Plan: ActiveCare HD, Primary, Primary +, or Scott & White
Coverage: Employee Only, Employee & Spouse, Employee & Children, or Employee & Family
Declining Coverage: including all dependents (self, spouse, and/or children)
(Declining Health Coverage for dependent(s) including spouse who may or may not have
health insurance is VERY IMPORTANT. Spouses that both work for the school district need
to make sure whoever is not carrying health insurance for your entire family (one or both
of you) will need to decline all dependents (including spouse) not covered by you.
3. Online process is REQUIRED. Please make sure you have this information available before you begin the online process (Payroll staff will be available to help you with the online process -- we strongly encourage you to bring the information below when you meet with the Payroll staff):
> Your social security number and birthdate.
> Your dependents (spouse and/or children) social security number(s) and birthdate(s).
> Decision on what Health Insurance Plan you will enroll in or if you plan to decline all
health insurance for you and your dependents (reason for declining).
