School Employees Benefits Board (SEBB) Program

Get ready to enroll in the SEBB Program January 1, 2020!

What is SEBB?
Starting January 1, 2020 all eligible school employees of Washington State school districts and charter schools will receive statewide insurance benefits through the School Employees Benefits Board(SEBB). The Legislature established the SEBB Program to ensure all school employees and their families have access to affordable, high-quality health care.

4 Things you should know to prepare for SEBB Open Enrollment this Fall:

  1. The SEBB Program’s first annual open enrollment is October 1 through November 15, 2019. Coverage is effective January 1, 2020. If you do not select plans during open enrollment you will automatically be enrolled into defaulted plans.
     
  2. Your current plans, rates, and deductibles will be carried through December 31st, 2019 as planned for the transition to SEBB.
     
  3. Everyone will need to provide documents that prove your dependents are eligible, even if you have previously verified them with your employer, such as a marriage or birth certificate, certificate of domestic partnership, or tax return, before they can be enrolled under your coverage. The full list of acceptable documents will be in the School Employee Initial Enrollment Guide that will be mailed out in mid-September.
     
  4. If you or your children are currently enrolled in Washington Apple Health(Medicaid) coverage, and you are eligible for SEBB Program coverage, you must enroll yourself and your children in SEBB benefits. You cannot waive SEBB medical benefits for Apple Health coverage, but you can be enrolled in both. If you are a current Apple Health client, you can apply for the Premium Payment Program, which provides reimbursement for your SEBB Program medical premiums.


Soon to come:
A new online enrollment system called SEBB My Account will make it easy and accessible to make your elections on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. You will be able to check your provider’s availability online to see if your current providers are in-network.

There will be an in-person benefits fair in October and a virtual benefits fair will be available for you to access 24/7 during the open enrollment period.
