Please note: If the medical plan you choose is associated with a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) you will want to fill out the appropriate HRA paperwork to qualify for reimbursement from Diversified Benefit Services, Inc (DBS) when you have met the deductible (see information below if you have questions about what an HRA is).
Customize to see only the plans and benefits you care about.

Insurance Rates & Plan Summaries
2023-2024 plan year (begins October 1, 2023)
Optional (voluntary) Insurance
Optional (voluntary) insurance such as Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) insurance, Group Life insurance, Short Term Disability (voluntary) insurance and Long Term Care insurance are offered to all licensed employees. The cost of any optional (voluntary) insurance is the responsibility of the employee.
For information regarding optional insurance plans, please visit OEBB's website
*An employee electing to not enroll in optional (voluntary) Short Term Disability when initially eligible (when hired) will be subject to a late enrollment penalty upon enrollment. This means that if you file a claim for any condition other than an accidental injury during the first 12 months your coverage is effective, Short Term Disability benefits will not become payable until after you have been continuously disabled for 90 days and remain disabled.
