“I have been employed by PYLUSD for 27 years as a part time instructional aide. I have no medical benefits but have a critical medical situation right now. Are there any benefits through CSEA allowed?”
Kenny Wilson – CSEA Organizer: CSEA does not offer a health benefits plan as such but there are two services through the member benefits department which may be of some help depending on your situation.
There are three Health Savings programs through Union Plus designed to help reduce out of pocket expenses for prescriptions, dental, vision, physican and hospital care services and more. Visit http://www.unionplus.org/healthsavings for qualifications and details.
There is also the Healthy families that offers low cost insurance for children who meet the criteria. More information about Healthy Families can be found at http://www.healthyfamilies.com
The CSEA member benefits department is always working to improve the benefits we can offer. You will find the most up to date information at http://www.csea.com
I hope this helps.
