Health Benefits

Washington County offers medical, dental and vision coverage to you and your eligible family members. The Benefit Guide will give you more information about how your coverage works and any restrictions that apply.


For medical coverage, you can choose between Providence (PPO) or Kaiser (HMO) medical plans. We offer dental coverage through Delta Dental or Kaiser Dental and vision coverage through Vision Service Plan (VSP).

Generally, Washington County pays 90% of the premium for health benefit coverage. However, we offer employees the opportunity to qualify for the Wellness Incentive—a lower employee premium share on medical, dental and vision coverage when you complete certain wellness activities throughout the year.

Health benefits are effective on the first of the month following employment.

Life and disability

We know life insurance is an important part of planning for your future which is why you, your spouse and your dependents qualify for this county-paid benefit. Our benefits include Life Insurance, Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) coverage, and a base long-term disability plan.

Voluntary life and disability options

Life happens - We offer options so you can prepare and choose what is important to you.

Washington County offers you the chance to apply for voluntary life insurance. You can choose to apply for coverage up to $300,000 as long as it doesn’t exceed six-times your annual salary. Your spouse is also eligible to apply for up to $300,000 as long as it’s not more than the amount of your voluntary life insurance.

We also offer an enhanced Long-Term Disability and a Short-Term Disability plan through Unum to provide additional coverage in case of disability.
