Health benefit premiums for COBRA and retiree medical coverage
The health benefit premiums for COBRA and retiree medical coverage are based on what King County pays to provide the same coverage to active employees. Premiums are subject to periodic adjustment.
The premium for a dependent child covers one child or many children as long as you or your spouse/domestic partner also elect coverage. If you or your spouse/domestic partner don't elect coverage, the first child pays the same premium as you and the dependent child premium applies to all additional dependent children. A child who no longer qualifies as your dependent and elects COBRA coverage pays the same premium as you.
Retiree medical premiums
