New:  Anthem will be sending each subscriber with dependents an annual dependent questionnaire in the subscriber’s birthday month.   The questionnaire will ask about if any of the dependents have other medical coverage.  If the questionnaire is not returned, Anthem will not process dependent claims until the questionnaire is completed and submitted to them.    It is extremely important that you complete and return the letter even if your family members do not have other coverage. 

PRESTIGE - Special Member Alert Announcement!
Attention employees who receive medical benefits through Shasta College! We are very excited to announce the STSIG’s partnership with Prestige Urgent Care beginning April 4, 2016.  The details can be found are on the PRESTIGE - Special Member Alert Announcement.pdfPRESTIGE - Special Member Alert Announcement.pdf.  A special note:  You must make an appointment with Prestige unless it is urgent/emergency care.
Open Enrollment is from October 26th through November 20th.  Employees will use PlanSource for their health benefits elections.  This is an ACTIVE open enrollment which means that each employee must choose a new plan for 2016 from the new plan options available.   All PlanSource login passwords will default to the birthday format on October 12th.  Passwords expire every 60 days.  Plan options and information will be emailed to active employees on October 9, 2015.  Please see below for the entire 2016 Active Employee Open Enrollment packet. 

4th Quarter Carry Over:

The 80%/20% plans feature Fourth Quarter Carryover on the Deductible beginning October 1, 2016.  Covered charges incurred from October through December and applied toward the Calendar Year Deductible for that year also counts toward the Calendar Year Deductible for the next year.  Fourth Quarter Carryover does not apply to Calendar Year Out of Pocket Maximum.

Dental and Vision:

  • The district continues to cover the full cost of dental and vision premiums for the 2016 short plan year.
  • Dental and Vision, unlike medical plans, are still on a composite rate for the 2016 short plan year. 
  • Dependents can now remain on the plan until age 26 (was previously 25).
Required Notices to Employees:
It’s not too late to earn the wellness incentive for 2016.​  For more information, please visit the STSIG 2016 Wellness Incentive page at   The deadline for completing the wellness incentive requirements in October 31, 2015.   Members who have their wellness exams in September and October always seem to not make on the Anthem reports in time for the incentive to show up on PlanSource before the October 31st deadline.  This year we encourage everyone having their wellness exam to submit proof of the exam directly to STSIG/JPA office (this is optional).  Members can submit a receipt from the doctor’s office or use the Bio-metrics form which now has a check box for the doctor to mark for the wellness exam.  This will help to avoid confusion. 
  • Those not qualified for a health savings account that completed the wellness incentive for 2016 will receive a $100 gift card on January 31, 2016. 
  • High deductible plan members with a qualified health savings account that completed the wellness incentive for 2016 will receive an additional $100 in their health savings account on January 31, 2016.   

This year’s health fair will be on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 from 5pm to 8pm at Sequoia Middle School, McLaughlin Auditorium, 1805 Sequoia Street, Redding.  Registration is required.  Click here to register.  Attending this event will earn wellness incentive for 2016.
