Retiree Health Benefit Options

As an active OUSD employee, your health benefits have been subsidized; as a retiree, while you are still able to participate in the district's group plans, your coverage plan, and costs will change. It's important to start planning for the transition to your retirement healthcare early!

Please come to a Benefits Drop-in session on Thursdays from 3:30-4:30pm on Zoom or email Benefits to setup an appointment. Please note that there won't be Benefits Drop-in sessions during school breaks.

Register for a Kaiser Permanente Medicare 101 webinar to learn about your Medicare health plan options.

Benefits Administration for Retiree Participants

Once you are enrolled as a retiree, your Benefits are administered through a Third Party Administrator - you will work directly with them rather than OUSD Benefits Staff for coverage and billing questions.
