Important! You must take action during the SEBB Program’s first annual open enrollment (October 1 to November 15) OR you will be automatically enrolled in coverage and charged $58 a month, and your dependents will not be enrolled. Take action by November 15.

Benefits fairs

In-person

During open enrollment you can learn more about health plans and other insurance options by attending one of the SEBB Program’s benefits fairs. At a fair, you can pick up information and speak with representatives from the health plans, the SEBB Program, and other plan administrators that administer SEBB benefits. See the benefits fairs schedule.

Virtual benefits fair

A virtual benefits fair is a new way to learn about your benefit options through an online experience — and it’s available anytime, day or night, during the first annual open enrollment.

Visit and explore to learn more about all the benefits available. You will find links to videos, downloadable content, provider searches, and other information to help you choose the right plans for you and your dependents. Use your computer, tablet, or smartphone to visit at your own pace.

Medical plans available by county and district

All school employees will be offered a selection of plans based on their county of residence. Some school employees, including those who live outside Washington State, may have more plan options if they work in a district that crosses county lines or is in a county that borders Idaho or Oregon. (Note: If your school district is not listed in the Medical plans available by district, you may only choose plan options available in the county you live in.)

Premium surcharges

You will be charged the following surcharges in addition to your monthly medical plan premium, if they apply to you.

  • $25 monthly tobacco use premium surcharge. A $25 premium surcharge per-account if you or a dependent (age 13 and older) enrolled on your SEBB medical uses a tobacco product. If more than one person on your account uses a tobacco product, you will still be charged a total of $25.
  • $50 monthly spouse or state-registered domestic partner coverage premium surcharge. A $50 premium surcharge if you have a spouse or state-registered domestic partner enrolled on your SEBB medical for 2020, and they have elected not to enroll in their employer-based group medical insurance that is comparable to PEBB Uniform Medical Plan (UMP) Classic. If you are not covering a spouse or state-registered domestic partner under your SEBB medical for 2020, this premium surcharge does not apply to you.
