Group Health Benefits

The Lafayette Parish School System offers three health plan designs from which to choose when enrolling for benefits.  Employees may enroll in health plan benefits when hired and, thereafter, may enroll in coverage, drop coverage, or make other changes once per year during open enrollment or when a "qualifying event" (as defined by the IRS) occurs.  New employees who join the health plan within 30 days of hire have no pre-existing conditions limitations applied.

The Group Health Plan of the Lafayette Parish School System is a self-funded plan whose claims are administered by a Third Party Administrator, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana.  Please click on the links below to review the three plan designs offered and the premiums for each.

We now offer a program called Vitals Smart Shopper.  This program allows our plan members to shop for medical services by comparing cost.  Members who save the plan money by choosing a lesser expensive facility can earn cash rewards.  Click here to learn more about Smart Shopper .
