Opt Out Information

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Opt Out Annual Verification will not coincide with Open Enrollment this year.  

If you are currently opting out of health insurance through the County of Humboldt, annual verification of other health insurance coverage will be required in order to continue to receive the Opt Out differential payment for calendar year 2019. However, this verification process will take place at a later date and you will be notified via County email or US mail when that process begins. You will be given ample time to submit your proof of other coverage.

Please Note: If you enrolled in the Opt Out on or after June 1, 2018, verification of health insurance coverage will not be required until next calendar year.
