If you are Non-Represented, or in the DSA, FOPPO, MCCDA, IBEW, IUOE, Dentists, Pharmacists, or Physicians groups*, you may have an HRA VEBA account with the County (Health Reimbursement Arrangement - Voluntary Employee's Beneficiary Association). If you are not in these groups and believe you should be eligible for VEBA, please contact us at employee.benefits@multco.us 

This account reimburses out-of-pocket health care expenses incurred by you, your spouse, or your dependent children.

If you qualify, you are automatically enrolled, and can then register to change your investment allocation, dependent information, and/or direct deposit for claims reimbursement.

For account support, HRA VEBA can be contacted via email through your online HRA VEBA portal or by calling 1-888-659-8828.
