Educational Service Districts monthly premiums

Monthly rates paid by schools for the full benefits package during the first eight months of the calendar year.

PEBB Program premiums may change twice during a plan year. The Health Care Authority sends an email notice to employers in the spring before the new premiums become effective and again in the fall before the new premiums become effective January 1 of the following year.

The premiums reflect the total that the PEBB Program will charge the employer. The employee’s premium (if any) is determined by the employer.

Full benefits package premiums

January 1, 2023 through June 30, 2023

The rates below reflect the total the PEBB Program will charge the employer. The employer determines what portion of the rates employees pay for their monthly premium. Premium surcharges may apply; see note below.

If an employee waives PEBB medical, the employer must still pay $1,130 each month to the PEBB Program, and the employee must enroll in PEBB basic life, basic AD&D, and employer-paid LTD insurance. Eligible employees will also be automatically enrolled in employee-paid LTD insurance, unless they decline this coverage. Employees may waive PEBB dental insurance only if they are enrolled in School Employees Benefits Board (SEBB) medical, dental, and vision insurance. Rates that include children do not vary based on the number of children enrolled. 

Note: In most cases, employees must live in a medical plan’s service area to join the plan. See plan service areas by county to see plan service areas.
