PRE-TAX PREMIUM DEDUCTIONS:

Premium deductions for active employees are made pre-tax.  Having your premiums deducted pre-tax generally reduces your state and federal tax liability and maximizes your take-home pay.

All health plans are required to make a Schedule of Benefits Coverage (SBC) available to health plan participants and beneficiaries during open enrollment.  Employees, participants and beneficiaries can access the SBC’s for the District’s Health Insurance Plan located in the documents section.
