Employee Assistance Plan: No Cost Life Support

Many of us are caring for elders and children and forgetting to care for ourselves.  Navigating the maze of legal, financial and personal issues can feel like going down the rabbit hole.  Our JPA offers the Employee Assistance Plan to help work through an array of life events.  This benefit is available to everyone in your household, 24 hours a day, at no cost to you and is completely confidential.

The EAP website (registration and login info at the EAP link below) offers articles, self-assessment tools and interactive child and elder care locating tools.  All members of your household are also eligible to be referred to local licensed counselors for up to four visits, at no cost to you.

Please take a moment to read about accessing the full range of benefits offered by your Employee Assistance Plan.

BCTA and the JPA

BCTA has 1 member who has been nominated by the BCTA President to maintain contact with and represent Association interests in the current JPA (Joint Powers Authority) Butte Schools Self-Funded Program. This member is responsible for reporting to the BCTA Executive Board and BCTA Representative Council any news related to health benefits and the BSSP. This member attends JPA meetings but is there only to represent BCTA, as he is not a voting member.

This is an opportunity that BCTA has chosen to take, out of an understanding that the health benefits offered our members are an important part of our compensation and health benefits are subject to many outside pressures.  BCTA feels that having access to the most up to date information and having an opportunity to contribute to the discussion is a worthwhile use of our time.

New information will be shared here on the BCTA blog as it comes available.
