New This Year - Providers Change
For the 2017-18 school year, we will have a new benefit provider for Dental, Life, AD&D, Short Term Disability and Long Term Disability. Benefit coverage will move from Guardian to Lincoln Financial Group (LFG) effective September 1, 2017.
New Offerings & Features with LFG:
With LFG becoming a new provider to the District comes a new dental option available to employees. The PPO Low plan offers both and In/Out of Network benefit at a slightly lower premium. The most important difference in this new plan is this plan does not offer orthodontia treatment benefits.
Life and AD&D:
LFG offers a feature within their Voluntary Life and AD&D benefits. For employees wishing to increase their level of coverage, LFG offers the option for employees to increase their coverage by $20,000 each year without requiring Evidence of Insurability.
