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 and charter schools, and educational service districts with represented employees in Washington State will receive health care and other benefits through the School Employees Benefits Board (SEBB) Program. Learn more about the SEBB Program.

Please note—this webpage uses tables: To see all columns in a table, especially on mobile, you may need to scroll or swipe left and right.

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.
