Continue health insurance coverage
Your coverage as an active employee ends on the last day of the month in which you resign or retire. If you owe a health premium for the month in which you leave, the premium will be deducted from your severance check.
The current benefits summary applies to all of the options you may select to continue after you leave Hennepin County.
Information is available based on whether you are:
- Retiring: see categories A and B
- Resigning due to disability: see category C
- Resigning: see category D (18-month COBRA continuation)
Modification regarding application of eligibility requirements for Category C: Disabled Employee was adopted on October 4, 2016 per Board Action Request 16-0346. This supersedes all earlier revisions and actions to the Early Retiree Health Insurance Program (ERHIP).
