    The District currently offers eligible employees three medical plan options. The plans include Choice Plus ONE; Choice Plus TWO and a Choice Plus HDHP. Understanding the differences between the medical plan options can help you decide which plan is best for you and your dependents.  These plan options are preferred provider organization (PPO) plans accessing the United Healthcare network providers.  AFUHSD pays $394.00 per month towards one of the three medical plans you elect.  If the employee waives medical coverage, the District will pay for employee ONLY coverage for dental and vision insurance.  With PPO plans, you can see any provider you wish, but you get greater cost savings by using the in-network PPO physicians, hospitals, labs, and urgent care centers.  This is important to consider since you share in the cost of care in the form of copays and coinsurance.  For more detailed information on plan structure, Click Here:
