MCISD Board unanimously approves employee benefits programs, saving district $1.9 million

On August 2, the Mission Consolidated Independent School District (MCISD) Board of Trustees unanimously approved a Health, Dental, and Group Life Insurances “Employee Benefits Programs” that is projected to save the district more than $1.9 million annually. Individual employees will also see a range of savings based on their selected plans and voluntary coverage options.

Under the Health Insurance, for example, the Self-Funded Administration Recommendation remained with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas while changing the Pharmacy Benefit Manager to Prime Therapeutics LLC (Prime), a pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) owned by Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies, resulting in a savings of $375,449 a year to MCISD. 

In the voluntary Dental plan, the Board approved the change to Aetna, which provides enhanced benefits at a lower cost and with a stronger network to give employees more choices when selecting a provider. Other products also had rate decreases and coverage enhancements.

The Board is making sure that employees receive the best available health options at the best possible price.

Employees review their benefit coverages and make changes each year during September. The changes will go into effect October 1, 2017.
