Plan Information

  • 1095 Forms Coming Soon—In early 2018, every County employee and non-Medicare retiree with medical coverage will be issued form 1095, which will be a statement of your and your dependents' health coverage for each month of 2017. 1095 forms will not be posted in ESS, but will be postmarked and sent via U.S. Mail by March 2, 2018.
  • Additional Medicare Supplemental and Part D Prescription Plans (for Medicare eligible retirees and their dependents only)—The County has partnered with Labor First to offer Medicare eligible retirees and their Medicare eligible dependents some additional Medicare Supplemental and Part D prescription plans.
  • Try Cigna Telehealth Connection—If you are a Cigna member, you have access to Cigna Telehealth Connection (PDF), telehealth services designed to offer employees greater control when they need to connect with a doctor. These services offer consultation with a board-certified doctor via phone or video chat from the convenience of your own home.
  • Explore your Employee Assistance Program (EAP)—Baltimore County’s EAP services are administered by Cigna and are available to County employees working 26 or more hours per week, retirees under age 65 and anyone who resides in the home of a County employee or retiree under age 65.
