End of COVID Emergency Declarations



May 18, 2023

Notice Regarding Continued Coverage

The COVID Public Health Emergency (PHE) ended May 11, 2023. During the national public health emergency, the plans were required to cover COVID tests and vaccines for free in and out of network, and to provide you with eight free OTC COVID tests per 30-day period.

California state law requires fully insured plans, such as Kaiser, to continue current COVID benefit coverage until November 11, 2023, and the JHMB has elected to extend this coverage for its self-insured plans as well, such as PPO Plans A and B, the Aetna Medicare Advantage PPO plan, and the Aetna Open Choice PPO plan. After November 11, 2023, all FUSD Plans will apply standard benefits and cost-sharing.

The JHMB is committed to ensuring quality benefits for all its plan members, and as part of these efforts, the Board will continue to notify you about updates and changes that may affect your healthcare costs and coverage.

Become a WellPATH Champion

    If your site is not listed, please include your location below.

    I agree to represent my school/department as the Wellness Champion for this school year. I understand the outlined roles and responsibilities of the Wellness Champion and will assist in the implementation and coordination of wellness initiatives. I agree to not only support the WellPATH Employee Wellness program by my participation, but to collaborate with my local management team to support the initiatives as well. I understand that the success of the program hinges on all employees being empowered to make informed decisions that positively impact their health. The WellPATH program can count on me to be a messenger and motivator and to help gather information from my co-workers, principals and managers to help foster a culture of wellness within Fresno Unified School District that supports good health. I also understand that I may be asked to assist in scheduling rooms and programs (including wellness screenings, seasonal influenza program) at my location, displaying WellPATH brochures, posters, etc. in appropriate areas, and encouraging my co-workers to be involved in the WellPATH Employee Wellness program.
