Gaining Other Coverage

Did you or your dependent acquire new group health plan coverage and want to Opt Out of County coverage?

Employees have 60 days from the effective date of other coverage to report the event to the Employee Benefits Office in order to Opt Out of County-sponsored health plan coverage.  

Loss of Coverage

Did you or your dependent lose coverage and need to opt into County coverage?

Employees have 60 days from loss of coverage date to report the event to the Employee Benefits Office in order to enroll into County-sponsored health coverage.  This change is only applicable to the employee if you are enrolled in the Opt-Out option with Multnomah County and lose non-County coverage.  Eligible family members losing coverage can also be enrolled at this time.

If the employee did not lose coverage, but family members are losing coverage, they can be added to the employee's current health plan elections due to the loss of coverage.
