Two health insurance plans will continue to be offered through the group health insurance program of Wayne County:

-The Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan

-Health Savings Plan(HSA)

Beginning July 1, 2020, those who pay for dependent coverage in the PPO plan will experience an 8.9% cost increase as well as plan changes. There will be no increase in the HSA Plan premiums or HSA plan changes. 

FSA enrollees will need to speak with a representative to keep their coverage, as it is the only plan that does not automatically roll over. All other plans will roll over to the new version automatically unless an employee makes contact either online or via an enroller to make changes.
