Post-Employment Health Plan (PEHP)

A Post Employment Health Plan (PEHP) is designed to assist employees defray the cost of health care after separating from County service. The type of PEHP account depends on your bargaining unit (BU) at the time of your separation. Please review your BU MOU for further details on how your PEHP is funded. Once you retire or separate from County service, you can submit reimbursement requests for qualified medical expenses from your PEHP account.

If you require an employer signature on your PEHP Claim Form, please route the form to the County Payroll Team. You can email it to Payroll at [email protected]
