Limited open enrollment (PEBB)

From July 1 through 31, 2020 only: Employees and some PEBB Continuation Coverage subscribers can make the changes listed below. Changes are effective August 1, 2020. Normally, you must have a life event, like a birth or marriage, to make these changes midyear.

We know the COVID-19 pandemic may have changed your health care needs. In light of that, the PEBB Program is offering an opportunity to make some changes to your PEBB benefits.

Who is eligible for this limited open enrollment?

PEBB employees and some PEBB Continuation Coverage subscribers can change some of their benefits this July. See below for the specific changes these groups can make in July. Please note that PEBB Continuation Coverage members may not enroll in a Medical FSA or change their Medical FSA annual election.

This opportunity is not available to retirees or PEBB Continuation Coverage (Unpaid Leave) subscribers enrolled only in life, AD&D, or LTD insurance.

Employees

  • Enroll in medical coverage if you are currently enrolled only in dental coverage. (Employees of a medical-only group may also enroll in medical if they previously waived.)
  • Add dependents to your medical coverage. To enroll a dependent, in most cases, you must also submit documents to prove your dependent's eligibility. See How do I make changes? for details.
    If you want to enroll your dependent in dental coverage, you will have to wait until the annual open enrollment in November or when a special open enrollment even occurs.

You can incur services and submit claims starting August 1, 2020.
