Human Resources : Health Insurance
The Department of Human Resource Management (DHRM) is responsible for administering health benefits plans for active State employees, as well as for retirees. A state-wide plan is available to all full-time employees.
The State’s health insurance program offers hospitalization, medical, surgical, out-patient, prescription drug, major medical coverage, dental, hearing, vision and out-of-network provider options. An employee may choose single membership, membership for himself or herself and one dependent, or a family membership. The State contributes a monthly amount for employees health insurance depending on the type of membership. The employee’s share of the cost of coverage will be deducted from his/her paycheck.
Plan specifics and cost information can be obtained at http://www.dhrm.virginia.gov/employeebenefits.html or from the WCC Human Resource Office. Enrollment information and information on making changes can be obtained from the WCC Human Resource Office.
