Hope you are all doing well.

This morning the District sent out an email asking us to complete a survey regarding health benefits.
I have already received a number of question and would like to clarify the reason for the survey.

First of all, as a certificated staff we are in control of our medical provider (CalPERS) and we have no plans of changing providers in the near future.
However, the District has control of our Dental and Vision providers and they are considering making a change.
They are asking everyone in the District to complete the survey so they can collect information to see if changing providers would displace employees from their current doctors for Dental and Vision.
Completing the survey is your decision, but doing so would hopefully help the District in their decision process for Dental and Vision providers.

Again, we have no plans of changing medical providers from CalPERS, in the near future.
