Health Insurance

COVID-19 STATEMENT

The District’s Self Insured Health Plans will all comply with the IRS notice and can pay for the COVID-19 testing and treatment before deductibles need to be met.  We will also treat the vaccination of COVID-19 as a preventive service. 

IRS Allows HDHPs To Cover Coronavirus Costs

On March 11, 2020, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued Notice 2020-15 to advise that high deductible health plans (HDHPs) can pay for 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) testing and treatment before plan deductibles have been met, without jeopardizing their status. According to the IRS, this also means that individuals with HDHPs that cover these costs may continue to contribute to their health savings accounts (HSAs).

The IRS also noted that any COVID-19 vaccination costs count as preventive care and can be paid for by an HDHP without cost sharing.

Rochester Public Schools offers three different health plan options to qualified employees.
