OPEN ENROLLMENT 2020

During this difficult time, Bonita USD and our partners are working diligently to ensure the health and safety of all our staff and their families. With that being said and due to the unique situation that we find ourselves in, we are adapting our upcoming Open Enrollment process to meet current safety requirements.
Open Enrollment will begin September 21, 2020 and go through October 20, 2020. Changes made take effect January 1, 2021.
 
As usual, employees may complete their enrollment online by visiting the self-service platform, AFenroll, at www.afenroll.com/enroll twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.
A step-by-step video on how to enroll online can be found at americanfidelity.com/howtoenroll
 
Assistance with enrolling online will be available by way of virtual support.
American Fidelity has implemented a virtual meeting capability. A computer will be required for this process. Employees can complete their appointment from home or work location as an American Fidelity Representative provides virtual guidance through the election process.
An appointment is required for a virtual meeting. To schedule an appointment, please click the link below, locate your school site and schedule a time convenient to you.
 
 
*You may also schedule an appointment by calling 1-800-365-9180, ext. 0.
 
Do not miss the opportunity to make changes! Employees who do not access their benefits will have existing coverages rolled over, thereby losing the opportunity to make changes.
After October 20th, changes can only be made if you experience a qualifying event such as birth, adoption, marriage, divorce or loss of coverage.

Health Benefits

Selecting a health plan for yourself and your family is one of the most important decisions you will make.  This decision involves balancing the cost of each plan, access to doctors, hospitals and pharmacy services and considering special needs for medical conditions. 
 

The CalPERS Health Benefit Summary, which provides you a general overview of medical benefits and also the 2021 comparison rate sheet for these plans can assist you with your decision. The District does contribute to your health benefits according to your percentage of full time employment.  This rate is listed on the Benefits rate sheet.  Please keep in mind that Bonita USD deducts 10thly for your benefits.  Addition of dependents due to marriage, birth or adoption of a child must be done within 30 days of the event.  Eligibility verification will be required for dependents - birth and marriage certificates, social security numbers and/or tax returns are acceptable forms of proof.

Health, Dental, Vision and Life Insurance are offered to eligible employees.  Enrollment occurs at the time of initial employment. To access dental or vision services, provide your social security number and date of birth to your dentist and eye doctor to confirm eligibility of insurance. You can also print a card from the website
