King County logo

King County employees have two medical plan options. If you have coverage through another employer’s medical plan, you may opt out of medical coverage and receive an additional $65 in monthly pay, taxed as ordinary income.

When you cover a spouse/domestic partner who has access to medical coverage through an employer, you will pay a monthly Benefit Access Fee for your spouse/domestic partner’s coverage.

If you and your spouse/domestic partner are both county employees, you may not cover each other as dependents, however you may each cover eligible children up to age 26.

To help you better understand your medical benefits, see the Glossary of Health Coverage and Medical Terms.

Preventive Care

Prevention and early detection are important for your health and well-being. Your health plans cover a wide variety of preventive care services—such as routine physical exams, mammograms, and cholesterol screenings—at little or no cost to you. Check the lists below to see which preventive services are covered, for whom, and how often they are recommended.
