Health & Supplemental Insurance

Full time employees may elect individual coverage or family basic health coverage under one of several Public Education Employees’ Health Insurance Plans (P.E.E.H.I.P). Employees who elect individual or family basic health insurance may also purchase any or all of the supplemental insurance plans offered. Administered by Southland National Insurance Company, the four supplemental insurance plans currently offered are dental, vision, indemnity and cancer coverage.

Contact the Office of Human Resources for current costs of basic health and supplemental insurance coverage.

Employees who elect to decline PEEHIP coverage receive the four supplemental insurance coverage (dental, vision, indemnity, and cancer) at no cost to the employee for either individual or family coverage. 

A PEEHIP Employee Handbook (with details of insurance coverage and information about pre-existing conditions) is mailed annually to each employee.

For more information on PEEHIP benefits, visit the Retirement Systems of Alabama website at or call 877.517.0020.
