Aspects of recently enacted federal legislation on health care will affect group health plans, including those in the PEBB program.
For example, the legislation requires plans to extend coverage for dependent children to age 26. PEBB plans currently offer coverage for qualified dependents to age 24.
Your Benefit Board is working to ensure the program complies with this and other requirements. PEBB’s Web site, newsletters and e-mails will keep you up to date on any changes to your benefits.
The Oregon Health Authority will provide more information on the impact of this legislation on Oregon and how the Authority is moving forward to improve health; lower costs; and improve access, quality and reliability of care.
