Benefit Enrollment

  • Open Enrollment

    Richmond Public Schools (RPS) is pleased to continue to offer comprehensive and competitive benefit options to support the health and wellness of employees and their families. 

    Each year, all benefit eligible employees have the opportunity to enroll in, or make changes to their benefit elections through open enrollment.  This year open enrollment will take place from Monday, October 15th through Friday, November 2nd, with benefit elections effective January 1, 2019

    Additionally, we are pleased to share that despite the rising cost of benefits, RPS’ 2019 benefit rates will remain the same as the 2018 rates - no increase will be passed along to employees.  

    Enrollment is available online 24/7 beginning October 15th!  (Click here to watch a Tutorial Video)

    RPS benefits include:

    • Three (3) Cigna medical plan options for primary coverage which includes comprehensive health care, vision, prescription drugs, and Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
    • A variety of additional voluntary benefits to meet unique needs, including dental, short and long term disability, and legal resources

    We want to thank those employees who participated in the biometric screening/health assessment.   As in previous years, taking the assessment allows you to receive a discounted benefit rate.  Most importantly, the biometric screening provides you with critical information so you can make informed health decisions, including participating in one of our many wellness programs (for example, this year we’re offering additional resources related to diabetes prevention and colon testing).

    We encourage you to read the enclosed material to learn more about the many benefits available to you and your family.  Again, we look forward to your participation in this year’s online open enrollment process, to be held October 15th – November 2nd.  Here’s to a healthy 2018-2019 school year, and beyond!

    Please be sure to take a few minutes to review this information to evaluate your needs for benefits for 2019. 

    Open Enrollment dates will be held from October 15th and end November 2nd. All of your elections will be effective January 1, 2019
