    ENROLLING IN YOUR BENEFITS
    This school year let's be healthier -- together. We are excited to offer three enrollment options for the 2021- 2022 plan year.  Benefits are effective September 1, 2021 - August 31, 2022.

    NEW HIRES - please see more information on the New Hire Webpage.

    Open enrollment ended Monday, August 20, 2021. 

    If you did not make your elections during the open enrollment period, your 2020-2021 benefits were automatically rolled into the 2021-2022 plan year, with the exception of any reimbursement accounts such as a Flexible Spending and Dependent Care.

    The first deduction for your new benefits will be on the September 15, 2021 paycheck. It is important that you verify your deductions to ensure they are correct and as expected.
      
    After September 15, 2021 you can access your paycheck and view your benefis elections in TEAMS Employee Service Center by referring to these instructions.

    If there is an error, please email benefits@galenaparkisd.com immediately and no later than September 30, 2021 so that we may verify your benefits and make the corrections, if valid.  At this time, we are unable to make benefit changes due to a change in preferences. 

    BCBS Medical ID Cards - ID cards have been mailed for those enrolled in ActiveCare HD and those who made changes. If you did not make any changes to your elections, you will not receive a new card.  Your existing card remains valid.
    Guardian Dental ID Cards - ID cards were mailed September 14, 2021, due to a reprint.  All enrollees should receive a new ID card in the mail the week of September 20, 2021. 
    Davis Vision ID Cards - ID cards have been mailed. If you did not make any changes to your elections, you will not receive a new card.  Your existing card remains valid.
