School district monthly premiums

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

Starting January 1, 2020, all school districts, educational service districts and charter schools in Washington State will receive health care and other benefits through the School Employees Benefits Board (SEBB) Program. Learn more about the SEBB Program.

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 September 1 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.

For example, you will get an invoice around May 25 for June coverage. Payment in-full for June coverage is due by June 20.

Surcharges in addition to medical plan premiums

Employees may have to pay monthly surcharges in addition to the medical plan premium.
