  • district plans

(1) In addition to contracting for health and dental benefit plans, the Oregon Educators Benefit Board may contract with carriers to provide other benefit plans including, but not limited to, insurance or other benefits based on life, supplemental medical, supplemental dental, supplemental vision, accidental death or disability insurance plans.

(2) The premium for each eligible employee for coverage under a benefit plan other than a health or dental benefit plan described in subsection (1) of this section shall be the total cost per month of the coverage afforded the employee under the plan for which the employee exercises an option, including the cost of enrollment of the eligible employee and administrative expenses for the plan.

(3) The board may withdraw approval of any additional benefit plan in the same manner as it withdraws approval of a health or dental benefit plan as described and authorized by ORS 243.878 (Board authority with respect to health benefit plans).

(4) If the board does not contract for a benefit plan described in subsection (1) of this section, a district may contract for the benefit plan on behalf of any district employees. The administrative expenses of the plan shall be paid in accordance with the district’s negotiated agreement with the employees. Benefit plans entered into by a district are subject to approval by the board before they become operative. The board may withdraw approval of any such benefit plan in the same manner as it withdraws approval of a benefit plan under ORS 243.878 (Board authority with respect to health benefit plans).
