Retiree’s Health Coverage

  • The BoCC pays 50% of the retiree’s total cost of coverage for all members already retired or employed at or prior to 12-31-07.

  • The BoCC’s financial responsibility in addition to the 50% subsidy, is payment in full of all claims, since we are a self-funded plan.

  • The retiree’s financial responsibility is their monthly premiums and co-pays for services rendered.

Long Term Disability Insurance (Fully Insured)

  • This benefit is provided in total to employees by the BoCC at no cost to them. This coverage is available to EMPLOYEES ONLY. Participation is NOT OPTIONAL. New hires may not waive this coverage, but are automatically enrolled when their benefits become effective (on the first of the month following one full month of service).

  • The plan provides 60% of pre-disability income to the out-of-work employee after three months of being out of work. Since the employee has not paid these premiums, benefit payments are taxed when received.

  • Participation is NOT OPTIONAL. New hires may not waive this coverage, but are automatically enrolled when all their elected benefits become effective (on the first of the month following one full month of service).

  • Life insurance is provided to employees at two different levels, depending upon their pay grade.

Sick Leave Pool (Self-funded)

  • Established in August, 2000, to provide employees with an objective, unbiased method of “donating” unused sick leave hours to other employees with a serious illness or injury who have run out of sick leave and vacation time.

  • The plan is optional and has requirements for “membership,” and limitations of use which were established via BoCC policy.

  • The annual “premium” is the employee’s donation of one day of accumulated unused sick leave time.

  • Sick Leave Pool statistics at the last reconciliation:

    • A total of ~33,000 hours have been donated to the sick leave pool;

    • ~14,500 have been “paid out” to members;

    • Leaving a total of ~18,500 hours available.

    • Membership continues to grow on an annual basis, with a total of 682 members enrolled in plan year 2009.
