    A Message from Patricia Howard

    Employee Benefits and Risk Management wants all employees to be healthy, in mind and body, so they can be ready every day to do their best for our students, employees and community.

    As you access healthcare services, please remember that the District is self-insured for all medical, pharmacy and behavioral health services. Therefore, spend wisely, whenever you can use generics, see a primary care doctor instead of a specialist. Consider utilizing the services of the onsite Employee and Family Health and Wellness Centers, which includes primary care, lab, x-rays, and generic medications. Co-payments are waived for services provided by the Health and Wellness Centers and generic medications provided at no cost.

    Also, visit our wellness page to learn more about the District’s Health and Wellness Initiatives (HWI). HWI include programs to help you lose weight, stop smoking, start exercising, maintain proper nutrition and understand your health and medications. This is all good for the mind, body and wallet.

    Be Healthy, Be Well
