Changes to Benefits/Benefit Bridge:

Any changes made to your benefits are made through Benefit Bridge.  Generally, employees can only make changes to benefits during the annual Open Enrollment window.  Outside of Open Enrollment, there must be a qualifying significant life event in order to make changes to your benefits.  Significant life events include marriage, divorce, birth, death, and loss of coverage.  You can access Benefit Bridge by clicking here.  

 

Dependent Age Information:

All health benefits have the same maximum age of dependent eligibility.  That age is 26 years old.  When a dependent turns 26, he/she is no longer eligible to participate in Brentwood Union School District health insurance coverage under the parent's/guardian's policy.  There are unique guidelines for adding dependents previously not included on health coverage depending on the coverage (dental, eye or medical).  Please contact the Human Resources department to discuss these guidelines if a dependent needs to be added to your coverage after initial enrollment.

 

Dental Benefits

Brentwood Union School District provides dental benefits to all benefit-eligible employees at no cost to the employee.  All benefit-eligible employees must enroll in District provided dental coverage.  Dental Dental is the District's dental insurer.

 

BUSD's dental plan is an incentive plan.  Under our plan the percentage of coverage increases every year for each individual covered when that individual goes to the dentist at least once during the prior calendar year.  Our incentive plan begins with 70% coverage and increases coverage by 10% every year, up to 100% coverage, the individual goes to the dentist at least once.  The incentive is applicable to many, but not all, dental services.  Click here to view a summary of benefits for dental.

 

Employees can save on out-of-pocket costs related to dental procedures by using Delta Dental PPO Dentists.  PPO Dentists have established agreements with Delta Dental for many procedures which reduces the cost for patients.  To find out more about the benefits of using a PPO Dentist and how to determine if your current dentist is a Delta Dental PPO Dentist, click here.

 

Employees can create online accounts with Delta Dental to enhance their knowledge of benefits as well as tracking of any claims.  Additionally, employees may select an option for paperless claims notification reducing the mail you receive.  Additional information about Delta Dental's online tools is available here.

 

Medical Benefits

Brentwood Union School District offers employees access to three medical insurance carriers: Kaiser, Sutter Health Plus, and WHA (Western Health Advantage).  The district contributes toward the cost of medical coverage based upon the Health Benefits Table which shows the employee out-of-pocket cost for full-time employees.   BUSD does allow employees who provide proof of other group medical coverage to receive "cash option" in lieu of enrolling in medical benefits.  Additional information is available below.  Employees enroll in medical benefits at initial employment or when becoming benefit eligible.  Employees may only change insurance carriers, change plans within insurance carriers or enroll dependents (other than newborns or newly adopted children) during Open Enrollment or when there is a qualifying significant life event.  

 

Kaiser:

Brentwood Union School District offers three plans with Kaiser: Deductible HMO, $15 copay, and $5 copay.  Each plan has different coverages.  Kaiser has a full medical facility in Antioch, the adjacent city.  Sutter Health Plus enrollees have access to all medical facilities and doctors within the Sutter Health Plus network.  A summary of benefits for each plan is listed below.

Additional information about Kaiser is available on their website.

Brentwood Union School District offers two plans with Sutter Health: $20 copay, and $10 copay.  Each plan has different coverages.  Sutter Health has a full medical facility in Antioch, the adjacent city.  Sutter Health Plus enrollees have access to all medical facilities and doctors within the Sutter Health Plus network.  A summary of benefits for each plan is listed below.

Additional information about Sutter Health Plus is available on their website.

 

WHA (Western Health Advantage)

WHA is a new option for medical insurance effective January 2018.  Brentwood Union School District offers two plans with WHA: $40 copay, and $20 copay.  Each plan has different coverages.  WHA is offered in partnership with Canopy Health.  The nearest full medical facility within the WHA network is John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek or Concord.  WHA enrollees have access to all medical facilities and doctors within the WHA/Canopy Health network.  A summary of benefits for each plan is listed below.

Additional information about WHA is available on their website.  Employees can also refer to the Canopy Health website.

 

Cash Option

Employees who have qualifying other group medical coverage may receive "cash option" in lieu of enrolling in District provided medical benefits.  Enrollment in "cash option" may only happen during initial enrollment or Open Enrollment.  Participants in "cash option" receive a monthly amount added to their paycheck.  For employees hired before January 1, 2011, the monthly amount is $352.  For employees hired after January 1, 2011, the monthly amount is $175.  

 

To participate in "cash option,"  employees must complete a Waiver of Group Medical Coverage.   If the verification of other group medical coverage is provided on the Waiver of Group Medical Coverage form by the employer or agency through whom medical coverage is provided, no additional information is needed.  If the employer or agency does not complete their portion of the waiver, the employee must provide proof of coverage that includes the group number of the coverage as well as the names of all those covered by the policy.

 

Eligibility for "cash option" is reestablished annually during Open Enrollment.  This includes completing a new Waiver of Group Medical Coverage and providing the relevant proof as needed.

 

Participants in "cash option" must notify BUSD Human Resources immediately if they have a loss of coverage.  Human Resources will work with the employee to enroll them in a District medical plan.

 

Vision Benefits

Brentwood Union School District offers optional vision coverage through The Standard EyeMed.  The cost of vision insurance is listed on the Health Benefits Table and is paid by the employee through his/her paycheck upon enrollment.  A summary of vision benefits is available here.  

 

Additional information about vision coverage is available on the EyeMed website.
