The Ozarks Schools Benefits Association was formed to secure cost-effective benefit options for school districts within Missouri. OSBA seeks to provide school districts with an array of quality healthcare solutions coupled with a wellness program to increase each district’s health and the life span of each employee.

Employee benefits for school districts.

Does your district struggle with budgeting each year for health insurance and employee benefits? With the health insurance rates on the rise, this can be a daunting task. We have the solution!

OSBA’s defined contribution approach to employee benefits.

With OSBA’s defined contribution approach, each district can set aside an amount of money for each employee and let the employees shop from seven medical plans, a health savings account, two dental plans, and one vision plan. Why struggle with finding the right plan that fits your budget and your employees, when you can accomplish both.

Set your budget and let your employee decide what is best for their needs.

The defined contribution provides a budget-friendly solution while also giving flexibility of choice to your employees which leads to higher employee satisfaction and less stress on district administrators.

OSBA’s coverage areas.

OSBA elects representatives from each region to sit on the board for input and guidance pertinent to their region and for trust fund administration. Every district has a vote on the annual benefit plan(s) that the board presents. For a list of participating districts or references, please contact Capstone Insurors.

Employer-funded—employee choice.

The OSBA program uses a defined contribution model where each district is allowed to define a funding amount that allows the employee to shop from a host of benefit options with funding allowed to be used towards the employees choice of seven medical plans, a health savings account, two dental plans, and one vision plan. With this model, the employee is empowered to decide what plan(s) are best for their specific needs, which leads to higher employee satisfaction and less stress on the district administrators.

We offer multiple network options.

Why put up with the stress of having to choose between two networks when you can have both? OSBA has the ability to offer your employees both the Cox and Mercy network options within Southwest Missouri. In addition, starting in 2018, OSBA can provide service to public school districts in both the Missouri Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City territories.

Access online through benefits enrollment and management.

New hire and open enrollment can be stressful. An online enrollment system will make the enrollment process and payroll processing quick, simple, and less frustrating. With OSBA’s online benefits portal, employees can enroll quickly, and payroll can manage benefits easily. OSBA also provides consolidated billing to help reduce the paper mess and multiple invoices that many payroll administrators are faced with.
