Sign up for email subscription service

Sign up for the PEBB Program’s email subscription service, Save the Green. This service replaces many of the PEBB Program’s general mailings like newsletters and account reminders. It means less paper, and you get information more quickly right to your inbox.

Just log in to My Account, and select “Subscribe/unsubscribe to email service” under Section A.

When you provide your email address and check "Yes", you agree to receive selected communications (such as newsletters, reminders, and other general information) from the Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) Program by email. Selecting this option does not include communications your health plan or provider mails to you.

We will not share your email address with any PEBB health plan or insurance vendor. Your personal email address will not be provided in public disclosure requests.

You can unsubscribe at any time through this website at no charge. To do so, simply check the box "Unsubscribe and remove my email address from my account." If you unsubscribe, the PEBB Program will remove your email address from the email subscription service and mail printed communications to your address on file.

The PEBB Program may continue to send some communications to you by mail, including those required by rules or laws. You may also request communications in paper form by calling the PEBB Program at 1-800-200-1004.
