Medical Benefits

The Town of Canton and Canton Public Schools encourage all of its employees to be covered by a medical insurance plan. In this regard, the Town and School Department offers eligible employees the following health plan options that will provide protection for themselves and their eligible dependents.

The employee with individual and family coverage pays an amount determined annually and effective July 1 of each year. The current employee monthly contribution is 25% of the insurance cost. Employee deductions are withdrawn each pay period. The employee pays for coverage one month in advance.

Adult Children-Medical Enrollment and Coverage Up to Age 26 (Effective July 1, 2011)

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010 requires employers that offer health benefits to extend coverage to the Adult Children of their employees until the 26th birthday. Individuals whose coverage ended, or who were denied coverage (or were not eligible for coverage), because the availability of dependent coverage of children ended before attainment of age 26 are now eligible to enroll in plans offered.
