Eligible employees must enroll in dental, basic life and basic long-term disability insurance (if the employer participates in these benefits).

In accordance with WAC 182-12-128 - An employee may waive enrollment in PEBB medical if he or she is enrolled in other employer-based group medical insurance, TRICARE or Medicare.

To waive medical coverage the employee must provide a completed Employee Enrollment/Change form to their employing agency no later than 31 days from the date the employee becomes eligible, during annual open enrollment, or no later than 60 days after a life event that triggers a special open enrollment.

State agencies, higher education institutions, and K-12 school districts and employer groups that participate in the PEBB program under contract with HCA, must pay premium contributions to the HCA for insurance coverage for all eligible employees. WAC 182-08-190
