Employer group monthly premiums

Monthly rates paid by employer groups for the full benefits package or the medical only package.

Counties, municipalities, political subdivisions, and tribal government

Full benefits package premiums

View premiums for calendar year 2021 on page 6.

Premiums are effective January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021. Premiums reflect how much PEBB will charge the employer. The employer determines what portion of the rates the employee pays.

These rates include the employer group rate surcharge authorized by RCW 41.05.050(2) (as amended by SB6475 (2016)), which for 2021 are $12 for single subscriber, $24 for subscriber and spouse, $21 for subscriber and children, and $33 for subscriber, spouse/state-registered domestic partner, and child(ren) coverage. The remaining difference in these rates reflects the offset from the employer group rate surcharge to the non‐political subdivision rates. 

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

Employer group rate surcharge

Beginning January 1, 2017, all participating counties, municipalities, political subdivisions and tribal governments will incur an employer group rate surcharge that will be applied to the monthly rate for each employee enrolling in a medical plan.

The monthly employer group rate surcharge is based on the plan tier in which the employee enrolls.

The monthly surcharge is $12 per subscriber; $24 per subscriber and spouse or state-registered domestic partner; $35 per subscriber and children and $55 subscriber, spouse1, and children.
