Health and Dental Plans

If you have experienced a life event change (also called a qualifying event) recently, you may need to make changes to your benefits package, or even consult the IRS in case of a necessary change in status. For information on life event changes, consult our guide: What is a life event?

Pioneer Educator's Health Trust

The Pioneer Medical and Dental plans are administered by Regence BlueCross Blue Shield and provide more flexibility and freedom than a traditional Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plan. This plan does have a network of providers but no primary care physician is required. You are allowed to self-refer to any preferred provider (even a specialist) and remain in-network. Out-of-network care is covered but will cost more.

Kaiser Permanente

With Kaiser as your health insurance plan your coverage includes medical services and providers within the Kaiser Permanente network. You will choose a primary care physician who will be responsible for your health care, making referrals to specialists and approving additional medical treatments. There is a significant reduction in out-of-pocket costs as you will pay a flat co-payment for the medical services received. Care received from a physician outside the network is not covered unless you are traveling or in the case of an emergency.
