WAC 182-12-141

If an employee reverts from an eligible position, what happens to their public employees benefits board (PEBB) insurance coverage?

(1) If an employee reverts for reasons other than a layoff and is not eligible for the employer contribution toward public employees benefits board (PEBB) insurance coverage under this chapter, they may continue PEBB insurance coverage by self-paying the premium and applicable premium surcharge set by the health care authority (HCA) for up to eighteen months under the same terms as an employee who is granted leave without pay under WAC 182-12-133(1):
(a) The employee's election must be received by the PEBB program no later than sixty days from the date the employee's PEBB health plan coverage ended or from the postmark date on the election notice sent by the PEBB program, whichever is later;
(b) The employee's first premium payment and applicable premium surcharge is due to the HCA no later than forty-five days after the election period ends as described in (a) of this subsection. Premiums and applicable premium surcharges associated with continuing PEBB medical must be made to the HCA as well as premiums associated with continuing PEBB dental. Premiums associated with continuing life insurance coverage must be made to the contracted vendor;
(c) Following the employee's first premium payment, the employee must pay the premium amounts associated with PEBB insurance coverage and applicable premium surcharges as premiums become due; and
(d) If the employee's monthly premium or applicable premium surcharge remains unpaid for sixty days from the original due date, the employee's PEBB insurance coverage will be terminated retroactive to the last day of the month for which the monthly premium and applicable premium surcharge was paid as described in WAC 182-08-180 (1)(c).
(2) If an employee is reverted due to a layoff, the employee may be eligible for the employer contribution toward PEBB insurance coverage under the criteria of WAC 182-12-129. If determined not to be eligible under WAC 182-12-129, the employee may continue PEBB insurance coverage by self-paying the premium and applicable premium surcharge set by the HCA under WAC 182-12-133.
