Employer rate for health benefits increasing this July

The Washington State Health Care Authority has announced the new employer contribution rate for health benefits of $1130 per employee per month, effective July 1, 2022. This is increasing from the current $936 per month rate, and will be effective through June 30, 2023, for fiscal year 2022-2023.

Departments will see this change hit their budgets next month when the employer contribution is collected in the June 16-30 pay cycle for the July 10 paycheck.
