The school system is self insured up to $175,000 per claim when it comes to providing health care insurance for its employees.
What that means is that after an employee reaches his or her deductible, the school system will pay the rest of the medical bill, up to $175,000. The school system has its own health insurance plan that pays all claims that are larger than $175,000.
