Welcome to Butte Schools Self-Funded Programs
The Butte Schools Self-Funded Programs JPA was formed in 1982 to self-insure our area schools for medical, dental and vision service.
What is a JPA? A joint powers authority (JPA) is a “special district” under the California Government Code. It allows public entities to join together to “pool” resources, in this case, health benefits. In this case, having a larger “pool” reduces rates and administrative costs.
Over 4,300 employees and retirees participate in the program. Including spouses and dependent children, the BSSP JPA provides medical, dental, vision and life insurance services to more than 12,000 people. Fourteen school districts, the Butte County Office of Education and the Butte-Glenn Community College District make up the 16 members of the JPA. Read more...
