The Employees Retirement System (ERS) offers medical insurance to benefits eligible employees.
HealthSelect, administered by United Health Care, is a point-of-service (POS) plan that allows employees:
- To select physicians and specialists from a network of doctors for a co-payment of $25 or $40
- To go outside of the network at an increased cost
There is a 90-day waiting period that begins the first day of the month following the employee's hire date.
If Employees Decline Medical Insurance
Employees may decline medical insurance. However, should they desire coverage in the future, proof of good health may be required.
