Note: If you cancel all of your PEBB retiree health plan coverage, you cannot enroll again later unless you regain eligibility for PEBB retiree insurance coverage, for example, by returning to employment in a PEBB benefits-eligible position or for a SEBB Organization in which you are eligible for SEBB benefits. If you cancel coverage, any enrolled dependents’ coverage will be cancelled as well.

When will coverage end?

PEBB retiree insurance coverage is for an entire month and must end as follows:

  • When you or a dependent loses eligibility for PEBB retiree insurance coverage, coverage ends on the last day of the month in which eligibility ends.
  • Coverage for you and your enrolled dependents ends on the last day of the month for which the monthly premium and applicable premium surcharges were paid. If you or a dependent are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan, cancellation will occur at the end of the month after the month your termination notice was sent.
  • Coverage for you or an enrolled dependent ends if you don't respond to a request from the PEBB Program for information regarding Medicare Part A and Part B enrollment or an action required due to enrollment in Medicare Part D.
