Lafayette Parish School Board employees, the below changes will take effect July 1, 2020, and are approved by the Board.

Preferred Brand prescription copays are increasing from $40 to $45. This change will affect the Basic, Enhanced and High deductible health plans. Note, the High deductible health plan requires meeting the deductible before the prescription copay is applicable.

The annual prescription out of pocket maximum is increasing from $1,000 to $1,250 per person under the Basic and Enhanced plans only. The family RX maximum is $2,500.

Prescription maximums are met from January - December annually. Note, if the member has already met the $1,000 prescription maximum to date, the remaining $250 would also need to be met in order to comply with the July 1, 2020, changes. 

Lafayette Parish School System now covers an alternative solution to surgery for many orthopedic injuries called Regenexx. Regenexx procedures treat the shoulder, hand, hip, knee, spine, wrist / elbow and ankle / foot. Contact a Regenexx liaison to help you determine eligibility and next steps.
