Serving You

The South Dakota School District Benefits Fund and Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Dakota have partnered to bring districts in-network access to every hospital and 99% of providers in South Dakota and an extensive access nationwide for every employee!

The plan is a partially self-insured trust consisting of specific stop loss insurance to insure both the individual member as well as the pool from excess loss. The 76 SDSDBF MEMBERS have received no or incremental increases in their premiums in the past few years.
