Shelby County Schools offers medical benefits administered by Cigna. The side-by-side comparison below provides information on the benefits, copayments, deductibles, and coinsurance for each plan. In-network hospitals include Methodist, LeBonheur, St. Francis, St. Jude and Regional One. Baptist is considered an out-of-network provider.
Full-time permanent employees (working 30 hours or more per week) may enroll in coverage within 30 days of their hire date (30 days for a re-hire). Employees may cover their legal spouse (if they do not have access to affordable employer sponsored group coverage) and their dependent children age 26 and under.
Coverage is effective the first day of the month after the completion of 30 days of employment.
You can only make changes to your health benefits during Open Enrollment each year or within 30 days of a qualifying life event (example: marriage, divorce, birth/adoption of a child, loss of other coverage, dependent loss of other coverage, etc.).
Enrolled employees and their eligible dependents will receive a COBRA notice to temporarily extend coverage under the Plan in the event that they separate employment or become benefits ineligible.
