Upon the death of a retiree enrolled in a County offered retiree medical plan, the County will continue to pay the County’s contribution toward the medical plan premium costs in the same manner as if the retiree had survived.
An eligible surviving dependent will be allowed to continue their coverage under the same circumstances and with the same County contribution as if the retiree had survived. To be eligible, a surviving dependent must meet each of the following criteria:
- Has been an eligible dependent of a retiree who was eligible to receive a contribution toward a County offered retiree medical plan under Section 13.2 prior to the death of the retiree, and
- Either be enrolled or have waived coverage at the time of the retiree’s death.
Any additional surviving eligible dependent(s) enrolled under the retiree’s medical plan at the time of the retiree’s death, may continue participation in the County offered medical plan but remain responsible for all premium costs in excess of the county contribution.
