Medical Insurance Changes for Classified Employees
Classified employees that participate in a medical plan will experience changes in their plan beginning in 2014. Because of the complexity of these changes, a series of question and answer meetings will be held in several locations throughout Sumner County for classified employees participating in the medical plan and their adult dependents. The purpose of these meetings is to provide information about these changes. For a list of meeting dates and times, please click here.
These changes do not affect certified employees or dependents of certified employees. Certified employees and their covered dependents are not expected to attend these meetings.
Please note that classified employees participate in a medical plan that is not administered by the School Board, but is governed by the Sumner County Insurance Trust, which includes both Sumner County Government employees and classified employees of the School Board. Sumner County Government employees have also been invited to these question and answer meetings.
Sumner County Schools offers a choice of health plans to all full-time employees. The Board pays the amount towards medical insurance premiums. Employees on an unpaid leave of absence may continue their insurance by paying the full premium each month. The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) may allow for exceptions under certain circumstances.
Sumner County Schools offers a choice of dental plans to all full-time employees and pays the amount towards the premium.
The Sumner County Board of Education provides compensation for work-related injuries for each employee through the Occupational Compensation Plan of the Sumner County Casualty Insurance Board. When an injury or accident occurs on the job, an employee must promptly notify his/her principal or immediate supervisor. This should be done even if the employee does not feel the need for medical attention. The employee is also responsible for reporting where, what, when and how the injury or illness occurred with enough information that medical treatment can be started and the necessary reports completed. If the injury is life threatening, qualified emergency transportation should be obtained and the principal or immediate supervisor notified as soon as possible. It is important the incident be reported within 24 hours or the next scheduled workday. The principal or immediate supervisor of the employee is responsible for seeing that the Worker Injury Report is completed and forwarded to the Risk Management Office.
BELOW ARE THE STEPS TO FOLLOW FOR TREATMENT OF WORK-RELATED INJURIES FOR SUMNER COUNTY EMPLOYEES:
Failure to have all medical treatment authorized by the Risk Management Office may result in denial of payment.
