Employee Benefits for Schools Districts
Does your district struggle with budgeting each year for health insurance and employee benefits? With the health insurance rates on the rise, this can be a daunting task. We have the solution! With OSBA's defined contribution approach to employee benefits, each district can set aside an amount of money for each employee and let the employees shop from 7 medical plans, a health savings account, 2 dental plans, and 2 vision plans. Why struggle with finding the right plan that fits your budget and your employees, when you can accomplish both. Set your budget then let your employee decide what is best for their needs. Defined contribution provides a budget friendly solution while also giving flexibility of choice to your employees which leads to higher employee satisfaction and less stress on district administrators.

OSBA elects representatives from each region to sit on the board for input and guidance pertinent to their region and for trust fund administration. Every district has a vote on annual benefit plan(s) that the board presents. For a list of participating districts or references, please contact Capstone Insurors.

Employer Funded, Employee Choice
The OSBA program uses an defined contribution model where each district is allowed to define a funding amount that allows the employee to shop from a host of benefit options with funding allowed to be used towards the employees choice of 7 medical plans, a Health Savings Account, 2 dental plans and 2 vision plans. With this model the employee is empowered to make their own decision on what plan(s) are best for their specific needs which leads to higher employee satisfaction and less stress on the district administrators.
Multiple Network Options
Why put up with the stress of having to choose between two networks when you can have both? OSBA has the ability to offer your employees both the Cox and Mercy network options within Southwest Missouri.
In addition starting 2018, OSBA can provide service to Public School Districts in both the Missouri Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City territories.
Online Benefits Enrollment & Management
New hire and open enrollment can be stressful. An online enrollment system will make the enrollment process and payroll processing quick, simple and less frustrating. With OSBA's online benefits portal, employees can enroll quickly and payroll can manage benefits easily.
