Health Benefits Unit
What does the Health Benefits Unit do?
The Health Benefits Unit handles dental, medical, and vision benefits for active
employees, including full-time faculty members, and adjunct
faculty members and their qualified dependents
. We offer both District-paid and voluntary life insurance benefits to our active employees and full-time faculty members.
If you are a retiree, or the survivor of an LACCD employee or retiree who has deceased, enrollment in your medical plan of choice is handled by CalPERS. LACCD's Health Benefits Unit still administers your dental and vision plans for you. Please note: even though CalPERS administers medical benefit plans for retirees and survivors, you are urged to keep LACCD's Health Benefits Unit informed of changes to your medical plan.
Dental, medical and vision benefits are also available, through COBRA, to employees and/or their dependents who have lost their coverage.
Finally, LACCD offers both an HRA, funded by the District, as well as an FSA
that is funded by the employee through payroll deductions.
