How to Enroll
Log into Workterra, the County’s online website and make your selections. Directions on how to access the website can be found in the health benefits section.

If you are electing more than the guaranteed amount, or if you are electing new or increased coverage at Open Enrollment, please be sure to complete the Evidence of Insurability on Lincoln Financial's website. Directions will pop up once you have requested your amount. Failure to complete this step will result in denial of requested amounts.
