Employee benefits are a significant part of your total compensation. Washington County is committed to providing you and your eligible family members a competitive benefits package. This summary is intended to help benefits eligible employees and potential employees understand the options. This is only a summary and, as such, is not intended to override the plan contracts, County policies, personnel rules and regulations or bargaining agreements that govern these benefits. Eligibility and waiting period (first of the month after date of hire for most plans) requirements apply. 

Health Benefits Plans

Washington County currently provides medical, dental and vision coverage for you and your eligible family members. Please refer to the plan summary for information regarding coverage levels and restrictions for each plan.

Employees will have an opportunity each year to qualify for the Wellness Incentive by completing select Wellness activities. Earning the Wellness Incentive gives employees a lower employee premium share on their medical, dental, and vision plans for the upcoming plan year (5% cost share versus 10% for employees who do not earn the incentive).
