County Health Benefits Reach Beyond Standard Health Insurance

Access MACo’s annual survey for insurance rates and coverage information for county employees and county government retirees throughout Maryland.


The fiscal 2019 survey of county government health benefits is available. This survey compiles county-by-county information regarding insurance options that county employers provide to their employees in each county in Maryland, Baltimore City, and the Maryland National Capital Parks and Planning Commission.

The health benefits survey includes detailed health insurance information about deductibles, co-pays, and maximums for in-network and out of network providers for county employees. In addition, county human resources professionals provide information on the availability of insurance credits for county wellness programs, programs which continue to expand throughout county governments.

This year, the health benefits survey also provides information on other types of coverage and their availability to county employees. These other types of coverage include:

  • Life Insurance
  • Legal Services
  • Flexible Spending Accounts
  • Long-term Disability Income Insurance
  • Short-term Disability Income Insurance
  • Accident-Only Insurance
  • Critical Illness Insurance
  • Dental Insurance
  • Vision Insurance
  • Cancer Insurance
  • Prescriptions
