California's Valued Trust (CVT) was established in 1984 as the Central Valley Schools Health & Welfare Trust. It was originally created through the combined efforts of district superintendents and labor representatives of both the California Teachers Association (CTA) and the California School Employees Association (CSEA). for the purpose of pooling resources to allow all districts access to quality benefits and cost savings. 

Today, CVT is one of the largest self-funded public schools’ trust in the state. CVT represents more than 162,000 members and encompasses more than 238 K-14 school districts, community colleges, and county education offices throughout the state and growing. 

Located in Fresno, California, CVT is governed by a 12-member board of trustees composed equally of labor and management representatives.  Its daily operations are overseen by an experienced, professional full-time staff of 40 employees.

With 35 years of experience in serving the unique needs of the education community, we are among the most respected providers of quality healthcare products for school teachers and classified staff in the state.
