Retiree Health Insurance:
The County shall provide hospitalization insurance in an amount equal to a single employee’s coverage for employees hired prior to July 1, 2014, who upon retirement, meet one of the following criteria:
- Age 65 or older and have been previously employed by Granville County on a regular full-time basis for at least twenty (20) years.
- Age 62 or older and have been previously employed by Granville County on a regular full-time basis for at least twenty-two (22) years.
- Age 55 or older and have been previously employed by Granville County on a regular full-time basis for at least twenty-five (25) years
- Have been previously employed by Granville County on a regular full-time basis for at least thirty (30) years regardless of age.
- County Commissioners having served three complete terms. County Commissioners having served two complete terms may continue coverage by assuming financial responsibility for the payment of the entire premium.
An employee that retires from employment with the County, having met any one of the criteria for continuation of hospitalization insurance set forth in this section, and who, upon retirement, was also providing additional spousal or dependent coverage, may continue that coverage until such time as the retiree is no longer covered under the policy due to a shift to a Medicare supplement policy, termination of coverage by insured, death, or other reason. The retiree must assume financial responsibility for the payment of the entire premium associated with the dependent coverage. Employees who leave employment with the county, then return can grandfather with regards to the retiree health benefits provided the return date of employment is within 60 months of the date of separation. Failure to pay for the dependent coverage in a timely manner shall result in the regular termination of the dependent coverage.
