Health Care Information

Employees hired prior to January 1, 1991 do not contribute toward health insurance premium costs for health and dental benefits and therefore would be better off by simply enrolling in the Enhanced health insurance plan.  

Employees hired after January 1, 1991 contribute 15% of the cost of health insurance premium costs for health and dental benefits if they select the Enhanced Plan.  If the Core plan is selected, then the employee contributes 5% of the cost of health insurance premiums (employees still contribute 15% towards dental).

Please compare the plans carefully so that you can make an informed decision. To access the monthly contribution rates for both plans and the plan comparison, please click on the link above.

The dedicated phone number to Excellus for RCSD employees active and retired is 1-800-584-4842. To access the website, please click on: Excellus/RCSD Website.
