Changes to MCPS-Provided Medical Plans Coming in 2018
Posted On August 30, 2017
During Open Enrollment this fall, MCPS employees will choose between CareFirst POS/PPO, CareFirst HMO or Kaiser Permanente HMO medical plans for coverage effective January 1, 2018. As part of negotiated agreements between the Montgomery County Board of Education and the three employee unions, MCPS will no longer offer Cigna medical plans or any Closed Point-of-Service (POS) plan. A smooth transition is expected for current Cigna members because more than 98 percent of the doctors in Cigna’s network also are in CareFirst’s network.
