1. Persons who were covered by county employee life insurance and accident and health
insurance plans prior to becoming state employees as a result of this chapter shall
be permitted to apply prior to becoming state employees for life insurance and health
and accident insurance plans that are available to state employees so that those persons
do not suffer a lapse of insurance coverage as a result of this chapter. The supreme court, after consulting with the state comptroller, shall prescribe
rules and distribute application forms and take other actions as necessary to enable
those persons to elect to have insurance coverage that is in effect on the date of
becoming state employees. The actual insurance coverage available to a person shall be determined by the plans
that are available to state employees, irrespective of any greater or lesser benefits
as a county or judicial district employee.
2. Commencing on the date of becoming a state employee, each person referred to in
this section is entitled to claim the person's most recent continuous period of service
in full-time county or judicial district employment as full-time state employment
for purposes of determining disability benefits as provided in section 70A.20 according to rules in effect for state employees of comparable longevity, irrespective
of any greater or lesser benefit as a county or judicial district employee.
