Permanent Life Insurance with Long Term Care

Whether it's due to a motorcycle accident or a serious illness, long term care is the type of care you may need if you couldn't independently perform the basic activities of daily living: bathing, dressing, using the toilet, transferring from one location to another, continence and eating, or if you suffered severe cognitive impairment from a condition such as Alzheimer's disease. Click below for more information on this plan.

Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Colquitt County Schools provides an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to all benefits-eligible employees and family members at no cost to you.  Call Guidance Resources Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for confidential assistance to help manage life's challenges!

Retirement & Savings

The Colquitt County Schools retirement program is made up of multiple parts: Social Security, either the Teachers Retirement System (TRS) or the Public School Employees Retirement System (PSERS), and personal retirement plan options.  If you want to learn more about how our retirement plans work, and how to make sure you get the most out of your retirement, click the link below.

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) allow you to contribute pre-tax funds to your FSA account(s) and use these funds to cover eligible healthcare and dependent day care expenses.  You may enroll in the Healthcare FSA (for medical, dental, vision, pharmacy, and other related expenses) and / or the Dependent Care FSA (primarily for dependent day care expenses).  

Identity Theft

Identity theft is a growing concern, as it affects about 1 in 20 American's each year. Recent research estimates that someone's identity is stolen every two seconds, and many people don't even know they are victimized until they're denied credit.  Identity theft victims typically spend an average of 165 hours repairing the damage done by the creation of fraudulent accounts, and an additional 58 hours on existing accounts.  The Equifax ID Watchdog plan has extensive protection for you and your family at a competitive cost. 

Wellness

ShareCare is the wellness program vendor for the State Health Benefit Plan (SHBP), and they provide comprehensive well-being and incentive programs for members.  As you complete wellness activities, you will earn points in your Health Incentive Account to help offset your medical expenses.  High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) members must meet a portion of the deductible before well-being points may be used. 

Disability and Sick Leave

As a Colquitt County Schools employee, you have the option to elect short term and / or long term disability coverage.  These plans pay a benefit should you remain disabled and unable to work, and provide you with financial protection in the event of a catastrophic illness or injury. 

Accident

Accidents are usually followed by a series of bills. Even if you have medical insurance, you may still have to cover out-of-pocket costs. If you suffer from a fracture, dislocation, or other covered accidental injury, Accident Insurance can help offset unexpected medical expenses, such as emergency room bills, deductibles, and co-payments.  When an unexpected injury happens, Accident Insurance can help offset costs that are not covered by your medical plan. 

Critical Illness

Critical illness insurance helps you and your family maintain financial security during the recovery period of a serious medical event, such as cancer, heart attack, or stroke.  The benefit provides a monetary benefit to help with the out-of-pocket medical and non-medical expenses of the illness, and coverage is available to both employees and their families. 

Life Insurance

Life Insurance can help provide financial protection for your family if you pass away. The money received from a life insurance policy could help your family with both everyday and future expenses, including medical bills, funeral costs, utilities, college tuition, and mortgage payments. Life Insurance provides you with coverage as long as you continue paying your monthly premium.

Your cost will vary depending on your age and amount of coverage you elect. It is important to assess your current and future financial obligations to help you determine the coverage that's right for you. Our Benefits Service Center Specialists can help you make the right decision for you and your family.

Vision

Our vision changes over time, so you may not be aware of your need for vision correction. That’s why an annual eye exam is critical to keeping your view of the world sharp and clear. Vision Insurance helps offset the costs of routine checkups and vision correction wear that may be prescribed. Routine eye exams are a preventive measure for maintaining your overall health and wellness, and your doctor will look for vision problems and signs of serious medical conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, diabetes, and even cancer.

Dental

Dental Insurance is designed to offer you coverage for common dental care issues and to help you budget for dental services. You pay for a certain amount out-of-pocket for services covered by your plan before your insurance starts paying (known as your deductible). Under this plan, the deductible is waived for preventive services like exams, cleanings, and x-rays. After you meet your deductible, you’re responsible for a percentage of covered expenses, which is called co-insurance. Dental insurance does have an annual benefit maximum. This is the maximum the plan will pay in any given benefit year. You will be responsible for the costs of all services after this benefit maximum is met. 

State Health Benefit Plan (SHBP)

There are two health plan carriers available to employees and their families: Anthem and UnitedHealthcare (UHC).  Each carrier has multiple plan options available, and each plan includes coverage for preventive care, visits to primary care and specialty care providers, coverage for hospital stays, and visits to urgent care & the emergency room.  When thinking about your health benefits, don’t look at just one thing - like your contributions or the deductible - be sure to consider the whole picture!
