For the 2018-19 benefits plan year, the APS contribution structure will change so that each employee receives $502.08 per month ($6,024.96 per year) for medical coverage for each employee who enrolls in an APS medical plan.

Employees who enroll in a medical plan with a monthly premium that is less than the employer contribution of $502.08 per month may use the additional dollars to offset the cost of dental coverage or vision coverage.  For those who choose a high deductible plan with a Health Savings Account (HSA), the remaining employer contribution may be applied to the HSA.

All medical and/or dental premiums paid by employees will be deducted monthly on a a pre-tax basis unless otherwise selected during enrollment.
