    HSA: Health Savings Accounts are individual savings accounts that you can use to pay for qualified health care costs tax free.

    Cash-in-Lieu of Medical Insurance:
    Employees who choose the Cash-in-Lieu medical stipend option, and indicate that in their Employee Navigator elections, will receive an annual stipend of up to $2,100.00, paid monthly. Employees contracted to work fewer than 40 hours will receive a prorated stipend amount. Those that elect the Cash-in-Lieu medical stipend will be required to provide a Certificate of Credible coverage from their current medical insurance provider.

    If you elect a high deductible medical plan, making you eligible for the district’s contribution into your corresponding Health Savings Account, and then due to a qualifying event waive your insurance, you will only be eligible for the difference between the district's HSA contribution amount and what your waiver stipend amount would be, if any.

     Employees that elect the Cash-in-Lieu medical waive option and then elect a high deductible medical plan, due to a qualifying event, will only be eligible for a prorated amount of the districts HSA contribution. This prorated amount will be based on the total waiver stipend amount received up to the date of the qualifying event and election of the high deductible medical plan.
