Health, Dental, Vision & Life Insurance Benefits
The District’s Health Benefits Program is designed to recognize and protect the District’s investment in each employee by promoting and preserving good health. Every employee who is assigned at least half time (86.67 hours per pay period) as either a probationary or regular classified employee, shall be eligible to enroll in plans under the Health Benefits Program. Eligible District employees and their eligible dependents receive hospital, medical, dental and vision care coverage. The District also makes life insurance coverage available to employees. Employees may purchase additional life insurance coverage for themselves and their eligible dependents by payroll deduction.
Upon employment, each new employee who is eligible to enroll in plans under the Health Benefits Program can obtain the information from the campus/location personnel office, the Health Benefits Unit at the District Office, or through the Health Benefits Unit website.
A new eligible employee must submit enrollment forms as early as possible to ensure insurance coverage the first of the month following their hire date.
Completed enrollment applications must be sent directly to the Health Benefits Unit at the email address listed below.

In some instances, employees who retire from both the District and PERS simultaneously, and meet a number of special requirements are eligible to carry District paid health, dental and vision care into retirement.
It is the responsibility of the employee to promptly report changes which affect benefit eligibility, such as the number of dependents and marital status, to the Benefits Section at the District Office.
