 Do I live in the medical plan's service area?

The tables below show plans available by county. All school employees will be offered a selection of plans based on their county of residence. Some school employees, including employees who live outside Washington State, may have more plan options if they work in a district that crosses county lines or is in a county that borders Idaho or Oregon.

Use the tables below to make sure you live in the plan's service area. Be sure to call the plan(s) you are interested in to ask about provider availability in your county. If you move out of your plan's service area, you may need to change plans. You must report your new address to your personnel, payroll, or benefits office no later than 60 days after your move.
