Health Benefits

Capistrano Unified School District sponsors a complete health and welfare benefits program for benefit eligible employees.


Benefit eligible employees* are offered the choices of:

  • Seven Medical Plans: Capistrano Unified School District is a member of the Metropolitan Employees Benefits Association (MEBA), an employer/employee jointly managed benefits trust. The District’s medical benefits are purchased through MEBA. The current plans are underwritten by UnitedHealthcare and Kaiser Permanente and Cigna.
  • Two Dental Plans
  • Vision Coverage
  • Term Life Insurance

Classified, Classified/Certificated Management and Teamsters are automatically enrolled in a long-term disability plan.

The amount an employee contributes toward health and welfare benefits is determined by the FTE, the coverage chosen, and the number of dependents placed on the coverage.


* Benefit eligibility is defined as working 20 hours or more per week or 50% or more of the full-time equivalent (FTE).
