Human Resources Employee Benefits


Full-time employees receive comprehensive medical benefits through Self-Insured Schools of California (SISC) using the Blue Shield of California HMO, Blue Shield of California PPO network or Kaiser Permanente HMO for themselves and their dependents. New employees select their plan upon employment and all employees have the option to change the selection during open enrollment each year. Please click on a plan below for more information.


Kaiser Permanente HMO


There is also a wealth of information about your benefits online at blueshieldca.com that is accessible by logging in with the ID number on your insurance card. You can view a plan summary and listing of benefits, find a doctor, find a hospital, correspond with a registered nurse, research through the drug database, view preventive health guidelines and heath videos, and find out about wellness discount programs.  You can also check your deductible and the status of claims.


A benefit to all Blue Shield members is the BlueCard Program in which employees can access urgent care services across the country and around the world. Before traveling abroad, it is recommended that employees check the website and call customer service for the most current listing of participating hospitals and to obtain a brochure that provides information on covered services in a foreign country.  This can be more cost-effective and eliminate the need for you to pay for the services and then submit a claim for reimbursement.
