PEBB’s Annual Open Enrollment begins November 1

The Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) Program’s annual open enrollment begins Tuesday, November 1, 2022 and ends Wednesday, November 30, 2022.

Open enrollment is your opportunity to make changes to your health plans and enrollment. Annual open enrollment changes are effective January 1, 2023. This means that even if you make changes during the annual open enrollment period, your enrollment will stay the same through December 31, 2022.

Changes you can make

During annual open enrollment you can: 

  • Change medical and dental plans.
  • Add or remove dependents
  • Attest to the spouse or state-registered domestic partner (SRDP) coverage premium surcharge for 2023, if required. The PEBB Program will mail a letter in late October at the address on file to those who cover a spouse or SRDP and are required to attest. You can also log into PEBB My Account to determine if you are required to re-attest. Beginning November 1, you can also log into PEBB My Account to determine if you are required to re-attest.
  • Enroll in the Medical Flexible Spending Arrangement (FSA), Limited Purpose FSA, or Dependent Care Assistance Program (DCAP) through Navia Benefit Solutions. *You must re-enroll each year*
  • Enroll in medical coverage if previously waived.
  • Waive your medical coverage if you are enrolled in another employer-based group medical plan, a TRICARE plan, or Medicare.

Learn more about the changes you can make on the PEBB open enrollment webpage and in the October For Your Benefit newsletter.

How to make changes

Starting November 1, you can make a change by:

  • Submitting a paper enrollment/change form and any other required documents to your payroll or benefits office. Some changes like adding a dependent requires the use of a form instead of online.
  • 2023 forms will be available on the Health Care Authority’s website under Forms and publications on November 1.
  • OR Logging in to PEBB My Account to make the changes yourself.
    • To access your PEBB My Account, go to https://www.hca.wa.gov/
    • Click Login at the top right corner of the screen
    • Select PEBB My Account
    • Login or create an account if you have not done so already

If you have questions about your enrollment or PEBB account, please contact benefits@shoreline.edu
