Butte College is part of the Butte Schools Self-Funded JPA (BSSP) that funds the cost of medical claims with its own dollars. Although providers and members see Anthem Blue Cross on the insurance card, BSSP pays the full cost of all claims. Plan deductibles run on a fiscal year basis from July to June.

Phantom Coordination of Benefits
If a full-time eligible employee’s spouse or domestic partner works full-time and is entitled to health and welfare coverage through his/her employment at a cost of less than $125 per month, the spouse or domestic partner must take at least the minimal medical plan offered. This requirement applies only to the spouse or domestic partner and not to dependent children. If a working spouse or domestic partner does not take the coverage offered by his/her employer, the BSSP medical plan will estimate the other group’s plan benefits to be 80% of covered expenses incurred (after $250 deductible) and BSSP will only pay 20% of the bills submitted for payment.
