"Qualifying Events":

* Please note that the district requires you to provide proof of your "Qualifying Event" before changes to your benefits coverage can be confirmed.


Cash-in-Lieu Option and Requirements

Employees who waive coverage by the district and who provide proof of other employer, non-individual market
health plan coverage* will receive the current Cash-in-Lieu rate per the Byron Teachers’ Association and CSEA Bargaining Agreements. Cash-in-Lieu payments are processed upon receipt of proof of coverage. 

Employees who waive coverage by the district and who provide proof of having other qualifying (non-individual market health plan) group medical coverage may receive "cash-in-lieu” option instead of enrolling in District provided medical benefits.  Enrollment in "cash-in-lieu" may only happen during initial enrollment or Open Enrollment.  

Participants in the "cash-in-lieu” option receive a monthly amount added to their paycheck.  

To participate in the "cash-in-lieu” option employees must complete a Waiver of Group Medical Coverage form linked on the button below.   If the verification of other group medical coverage is provided on the Waiver of Group Medical Coverage form by the employer or agency through whom medical coverage is provided, no additional information is needed.  If the employer or agency does not complete their portion of the waiver, the employee must provide proof of coverage that includes the group number of the coverage as well as the names of all those covered by the policy and effective date.

Eligibility for the "cash-in-lieu” option is reestablished every year during Open Enrollment.  This includes completing a new Waiver of Group Medical Coverage and providing the relevant proof as needed.

Participants in the "cash-in-lieu” must notify BUSD Human Resources immediately if they have a loss of coverage.  Human Resources will work with the employee to enroll them in a District medical plan.

In order to disenroll in Benefits & receive "cash-in-lieu”, employees must:

  • Waive medical coverage through BenefitBridge during Open Enrollment

  • Submit a completed 2023 Waiver of Benefits Form to the Human Resources Department.
