Potential government shutdown

In the event of a federal government shutdown, individuals enrolled in Apple Health (Medicaid), Public Employees Benefits Board, and School Employees Benefits Board coverage—and those accessing behavioral health services—will not experience a disruption in care. In addition, health care providers will continue to be paid for the services they provide.

If a shutdown occurs, we will share more information at that time.

Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) Program

The Public Employees Benefits Board sets eligibility requirements, approves premiums for medical and dental plans, and approves the plans that provide health benefits to 222,000 public employees and retirees. The members are appointed by the Governor and represent a wide range of members and expertise. Working together with staff in HCA's Employees and Retirees Benefits Division, the Board ensures that PEBB members receive the best benefits at the most affordable cost possible. The PEB Board is separate and independent from the School Employees Benefits Board (SEBB).

The PEB Board meets from February to July to discuss PEBB benefits. Their meetings are always open to the public.
