The Sparta Area School District uses a third-party administrator
to manage both its Health Reimbursement Arrangement plan and its
Flexible Benefit (IRS Section 125 Plan).

an HRA that can be used to cover deductible and other eligble
expenses. The district maintains a "high deductible" health
insurance plan. Another HRA Plan is also used to manage some
employee's early retirement benefit for health-related
The District's Flexible Benefit Plan is available to active
employees. Employees may elect to set money aside pre-tax to
be used for eligible medical and dependent care expenses.
Employees can view plan information for both the HRA and Flex

website by logging in as a participant (initial log in = social
security number, initial password = last 4 digits of social
security number): midamerica.biz
