SEBB Insurance Resources

The Legislature has approved and funded a new health care system for K-12 school employees that begins in January 2020. The new School Employees Benefits Board (SEBB) program will replace the existing health insurance negotiated locally in each school district. That means all K-12 public school employees will have a new insurance plan beginning January 1.

Open enrollment is October 1 – November 15.  Be prepared with documentation if you plan to cover dependents.  Watch for declaration of non-smoker on the enrollment form.  Tobacco users will be charged an additional $25 surcharge.

Plan options are based upon the county you LIVE in.  Clark County offers Kaiser NW and Uniform Medical Plan (UMP) https://www.hca.wa.gov/employee-retiree-benefits/school-employees/medical-plans-county
