As a result of a March 1 letter of understanding with the EID Employees Association, employees and retirees contribute at least 10.55 percent of the cost of the premium for any dependents plus all additional premium costs if they choose a different plan than the Kaiser nonprofit group’s plan.
Another aspect of the March 1 LOU is that if the monthly premium increases by more than 10 percent the employee or retiree will share equally with the district the portion in excess of 10 percent. A single employee is 100 percent covered by the district, if that employee chooses Kaiser.
What was approved by the board Sept. 9 was a detailed employer contribution chart required by CalPERS, which provides medical insurance for retirees and for some district employees who don’t choose Kaiser.
