The legislative body of a county may authorize payment from funds under its jurisdiction of all or such portion as it may elect of the premiums or other charges for hospital, medical, surgical, disability, death benefits, or related benefits whether provided on an insurance or a service basis for persons who on a voluntary basis and without compensation perform services on behalf of any county department or district of which the board of supervisors is the governing body.
Any dividends paid, premiums refunded or other rebates or refunds received under insurance or other benefits provided pursuant to this section shall be the property of the county.
