The Jefferson Parish Public School System strives to provide our employees with high-quality and affordable healthcare options. JPPSS’ 2017 Plan Year Open and Annual Enrollment periods provide employees the opportunity to elect, cancel, and make changes to their health and supplemental insurance coverage.

Open Enrollment will occur Monday, September 26, 2016 – Wednesday, November 2, 2016. During this time employees will elect or make changes to their supplemental (dental, vision, life, accident, cancer, flexible spending account, etc.) insurance coverage. Additionally, if an employee would like to move any of their coverage to pre-tax or post-tax status, this can be completed during Open Enrollment. All employees that work 20 or more hours a week should complete Open Enrollment.

Open Enrollment will take place at all JPPSS schools and central office sites. Employees can attend Open Enrollment at any site, but employees may have a longer wait time at a non-home location. Please follow the link below for the complete enrollment schedule. The link is also available on the Payroll Services and Employee Resources websites.

Annual Enrollment is October 1, 2016 – November 15, 2016. During Annual Enrollment employees can elect or make changes to their Office of Group Benefits (OGB) health and life insurance coverage only. Employees only need to take action during Annual Enrollment if they desire to enroll in coverage or make changes to their Office of Group Benefits health insurance coverage. Additionally, employees enrolled in the Pelican HSA (health savings account) 775 plan must set a 2017 contribution amount.

Employees who need to enroll in coverage, elect a 2017 health savings account contribution amount, or make changes to their OGB health insurance coverage should make an appointment to visit the Insurance Department during Annual Enrollment. Please call 349-8564 to schedule an appointment. All appointments will be held at the Administration Building (501 Manhattan Blvd, Harvey, LA).

Photo identification (school ID, drivers’ license, etc) is required for Open and Annual Enrollment. Please present your identification to the representative at the time of your enrollment.

All elections and changes made during Open Enrollment and Annual Enrollment will be effective Sunday, January 1, 2017. Employees’ current insurance coverage elections will continue until Saturday, December 31, 2016.
