Counties that are self-insured for health insurance: 

In 2017, the Commission voted to allow counties to submit costs for employee health insurance benefits paid out from self-insured counties. However, those costs are limited to an annual cap. The cap each year is based on the State of Indiana Employer premiums. For 2019 and 2020, those rates are: 

Single: $6,753.24

Family: $19,183.32

If your county is self-insured, please review the request for reimbursement instructions regarding elgible expenses. Please contact Commission for additional assistance.
