Lafayette Parish School Board employees, effective July 1, 2020, the Board approved the below changes to the Blue Cross Blue Shield health plan.

Preferred Brand prescription copays are increasing from $40 to $45. This change will affect the Basic, Enhanced and High deductible health plans. *Please note, the High deductible health plan requires the deductible to be met before the prescription copay is applicable.

The annual Prescription out of pocket maximum is increasing from $1k to $1,250 per person, with a $2,500 family maximum, under the Basic and Enhanced plans only.

Prescription maximums are met from January - December annually. *Please note, if the member has already met the $1k prescription maximum to date, the remaining $250 would also need to be met in order to comply with the July 1, 2020, changes.
