The Legislature has approved and funded a new health care system for K-12 school employees that begins in January 2020. The new School Employees Benefits Board (SEBB) program will replace the existing health insurance negotiated locally in each school district. That means all K-12 public school employees will have a new insurance plan beginning next year.
Enrollment guides will be mailed to K-12 employees in mid-September. Open enrollment will run from October 1 through November 15 for benefits that begin on January 1, 2020. Recently, the State released new, unofficial insurance premium rates, along with a map that shows which insurance carriers are offering plans in which counties. The Health Care Authority (HCA) will be hosting benefit fairs in 20 locations across the state during the open enrollment period to help answer questions about the transition.
