Health Plan Supports for COVID-19In light of increasing concerns and media coverage surrounding the COVID-19, FCPS has partnered with our vendors to ensure there are no financial barriers to those who may need to obtain testing. Please review the supports available to employees and retirees who are covered under the FCPS health plans on the COVID-19 Health Plan Supports website.
FCPS offers eligible employees a choice of three comprehensive, quality medical insurance plans. Medical plans cover hospitalization, physician visits, therapeutic services, prescription drugs, vision benefits, and more.
FCPS offers eligible employees a choice of two dental insurance plans, both provided by Aetna. You may enroll in a dental plan through FCPS without enrolling in a medical plan through FCPS.
FCPS offers Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) for healthcare and dependent daycare expenses. Participating in an FSA can help you save money by paying for these services with pre-tax dollars.
All eligible employees receive basic life benefits. Your life insurance benefits are tied to your retirement program. You may elect to increase your life insurance coverage by applying for optional coverage.
Life EventsOutside of the Open Enrollment period, changes to medical, dental, and flexible spending accounts are only allowed if you are experiencing a life event. In most cases, changes to benefits must be requested within 30 calendar days of the event.
Additionally, you may request changes to your health, dental, and flexible spending accounts during the annual Open Enrollment period (typically held in October), with an effective date of January 1.
