Open enrollment

PEBP and NSHE open enrollment is May 1 through May 31

This is the time during the year to evaluate your PEBP Health Insurance benefits and to make changes to your current plan options and/or dependent coverage, if necessary. Any changes made during the PEBP Open Enrollment Period will become effective July 1. If you do not make any changes to your PEBP Insurance enrollment, your current plan options and dependent coverage will continue and you will pay the associated premium.

Open enrollment steps

  1. Review PEBP's new health insurance plans and options
  2. Enroll in a PEBP health insurance plan
  3. Review NSHE's FSA and voluntary insurance options
  4. Enroll in NSHE's FSA and voluntary insurance options

Actions that can be taken during open enrollment

  2. Change medical plan option
  3. PPO Participants may switch from Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) to Health Savings Account (HSA) if eligible
  4. Elect to decline coverage
  5. Enroll in voluntary benefits plan(s) (example: Voluntary Life Insurance, Short-term Disability)

*Eligible dependents may only be added to an insurance plan that the employee is enrolled in. Supporting documentation such as a marriage certificate for a spouse or a birth certificate for a dependent child must be provided to PEBP by June 15 in order for the dependent to be added to the insurance plan.
