Employee Health Benefits Plan

Wood County is committed to maintaining a quality, affordable health care plan for its employees, although it is not a statutorily-mandated benefit.

The Commissioners are the trustees of the Health Benefits Plan.  They believe this governmental, self-insured, non-ERISA Plan is a "grandfathered health plan" under the Federal Health Care Reform: Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act. As permitted by this Act, a grandfathered health plan can preserve basic health coverage that was already in effect when the law was enacted.  Questions regarding which protections apply and which protections do not apply to a grandfathered health plan and what might cause a plan to change from grandfathered status can be directed to the Commissioners' Office at 419.354.9100.  You may also contact the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services at www.hhs.gov.

Members of the Employees Health Benefits Committee take their role of preserving the long-term viability of employee benefits very seriously.  Their task is difficult when weighing employee satisfaction and preservation of benefits.

Starting May 12, 2023, the Wood County Employee Health Benefits Plan will no longer be subject to federal requirements for coverage of COVID-19 testing, vaccinations and treatments under the public health emergency (PHE) ending on May 11, 2023. Such services will still be available to members, but will fall under the Plan’s deductible and co-insurance.
