Due to the number of positive COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across the country and locally, Linn County has closed most buildings to the public to help reduce community spread of the virus and to help ensure continuity of County services.
Linn County offers full-time and part-time employees who are scheduled to work 20 hours a week or more a dental insurance plan administered by Delta Dental. Your premium will vary based on the number of hours you are regularly scheduled to work.
Employees have 30 days from their date of hire or 30 days from the date of a qualifying life event to make changes to their dental insurance policies.
Qualifying Life Events
If you experience a qualifying life event, you must notify Human Resources at 319-892-5120 to make changes to your dental policy within 30 days of the event. Qualifying events include, but are not limited to:
Change in your marital status (marriage, divorce or legal separation)
Addition of a dependent (birth or adoption of a child)
Death of a covered dependent
Loss or gain of eligibility for insurance coverage for you or a covered dependent
If you miss the 30 day deadline, no changes can be made unless you have another qualifying life event.
Linn County does not offer open enrollment for dental benefits. Changes can be made within 30 days from hire date or 30 days from an event date.
