  • STIP Teachers can now cover their dependents under the District Health Plan

    Effective July 1st, 2018, STIP substitutes who are eligible for medical coverage may cover their spouse and/or dependents up to the age of 26 under their medical plan, at their own cost.

    All forms to enroll in Kaiser Permanente HMO must be returned to the Benefits Office at 1000 Broadway, Suite 295 OR sent directly to your assigned Benefits Representative along with any supporting documentation. For example, if you are enrolling for the first time or adding a spouse and/or children, you will need to attach copy of your marriage license and/or birth certificates for the child(ren). If you are enrolling a domestic partner, you will need to attach a State of California Certificate of Domestic Partnership.

    Please click this link for rates or contact your assigned Benefits Rep at 510-879-0202.
