Group Health Benefits

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 see the links below to review the three plan designs and premiums for each.

The Lafayette Parish School System offers three health plans to choose from. Employees may enroll in health plan benefits when hired, at open enrollment or during a "qualifying event" (as defined by the IRS). New employees who join the health plan, within 30 days of hire, will have no pre-existing condition limitations applied.

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