Do I live in the medical plan's service area?

In most cases, you must live or work in the medical plan’s service area to join the plan. All school employees are offered a selection of plans based on their county of residence or the county where their school district, charter school, or educational service district is based. Some school employees may have more plan options if they work in a district that crosses county lines.

Be sure to call the plans you are interested in to ask about provider availability in your county. If you move out of your plan's service area, you may need to change plans. You must report your new address to your payroll or benefits office no later than 60 days after your move.
